Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In La Cuccagna, director and co-writer Luciano Salce has put together the ingredients he enjoys the most in his films, a lightweight story with a bit of conflict between old values and new. In this routine tale, Rossella (Donatella Turri) has a steady relationship going with her rather sullen boyfriend Giuliano (Luigi Tenco) but is also out in the job market, looking for a good position somewhere. She finds a place with a crazy, ambitious businessman (Umberto D'Orsi) but then faces a series of challenges to her morals and the temptation of easy money.
