Il profeta Wikipedia
Il profeta (internationally released as Mr. Kinky and The Prophet) is a 1968 Italian comedy film directed by Dino Risi.
Pietro Breccia (Vittorio Gassman) is a man who has long decided to abandon civilization, becoming a hermit, leaving behind the strain of modern life and the futility of consumer society, living for years in seclusion on Soratte, near Rome. One day he is discovered by a TV crew that, sniffing the scoop, film a report about him. From that moment, against his will, he gets sucked into civilization.Vittorio Gassman: Pietro Breccia, the hermit
Ann-Margret: Maggie, a hippy
Liana Orfei: Albertina, Puccio's sister
Fiorenzo Fiorentini: Luigi
Oreste Lionello: Puccio, Breccia's manager
Enzo Robutti: Alberto
Yvonne Sanson: Carla Bagni
Helped by the accurate Ettore Scola, it's one of those movies from the master of Italian comedies to re-discover absolutely. Exquisite, swinging, smart, this film appeared to be an hilarious mirror of some of the most pregnant clichés of the occidental modernity. But it remains underrated and unknown, especially because there is no releases in DVD and Blu-ray.
