Between Apocalypse and Nostalgia
It examines the rhetoric of male crisis in a group of Italian films that were made in response to the recent advancement of feminism in Italian society, including The Last Woman (1976), Bye Bye Monkey (1978) and City of Women (1980). The chapter focuses in particular on the apocalyptic imagery of these films. It examines the way this apocalyptic imagery is constructed, the desires and aspirations that it conceals, and the expression of specific male anxieties in accommodating social change.
