Lina Wertmueller sets next project
Film inspired by Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus
TAORMINA, Italy -- Lina Wertmueller, who in 1975 became the first woman nominated for a best director Oscar, on Friday announced that her latest film, inspired by Bangladeshi Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, will be called "Mannaggia la miseria!"
The film, whose title is a difficult-to-translate vulgar phrase, is set in Naples. It will be the 81-year-old Wertmueller's first directorial effort since 2004's "Peperoni ripieni e pesci in faccia" (Too Much Romance ... It's Time for Stuffed Peppers).
