WORKING CLASS GOES TO HEAVEN, THE
THE WORKING CLASS GOES TO HEAVEN aka LULU THE TOOL [LA CLASSE OPERAIA VA IN PARADISO]
Overachieving auto worker Lulu (an outstanding Gian Maria Volontè) is a superstar on the factory floor, the darling of his employers and the envy of his fellow workers due to the ease of his production. But after he loses a finger in a work accident, he begins to question what it's all about, beginning a strange journey that will see him go on strike, get fired, take up with student Communists and eventually return to work more bewildered than enlightened. The film shared the Palme d’Or at the 1972 Cannes Film Festival with THE MATEI AFFAIR, which also starred Volontè. The score is by Ennio Morricone. DIR/SCR Elio Petri; SCR Ugo Pirro; PROD Ugo Tucci. Italy, 1971, color, 110 min, digital presentation. In Italian with English subtitles. NOT RATED
