Lina Polito in Film d'amore e d'anarchia
Do I have to mention how much I adore this film?  I first saw it when I was about 14 and it had a huge impact on me - fashion wise, make-up wise, the fact that it was directed by a woman... 
Another fabulous film that I barely read/hear about.  No one ever talks about it, no one I have ever met has seen it - maybe I need to meet new people... but not really, I'm too shy.
