Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Luparella is Giuseppe Bertolucci's adaptation of the play by Enzo Moscato). Nana (Isa Danieli) lives in Naples in 1943. When the Germans invade, almost all of the residents and workers in the brothel where she lives take off. Only Nana and Luparella, a very pregnant prostitute, remain. Nana delivers the baby, but the mother passes away. A Nazi officer molests the dead body, causing Nana to take an appropriate measure of revenge. Luparella was screened at the Venice Film Festival.
