From the writer of DIVORCE ITALIAN STYLE and now available on DVD, THE AUTOMOBILE tells the story of Anna, an experienced prostitute who, despite her success as a permanent part of the Roman nightlife, is dissatisfied by her position. Reflecting upon her situation and hoping for a way out she decides to buy a convertible. But when she ventures outside of the city for the first time, the people and situations she encounters are not what she expects and things go from bad to worse.

Starring Italian cinema icon Anna Magnani as Anna, and featuring an original score by the world-renowned Italian composer Ennio Morricone, THE AUTOMOBILE is a deserved gem of '70s Italian cinema.
