UNCUT from Strand Releasing
Comedy / Italian w/English Subtitles
Ciccio is at home, stuck in bed with a fractured pelvis.
He has just one aim: find a woman who will get into bed with him. Amongst the various visitors, who in a tragicomic way only increase his desire without satisfying it, there is a policewoman who interrogates him about the disappearance of his girlfriend. Ciccio is suspected of murder.

The motive emerges from phone conversations with an unknown woman. It could be the uncertainty, the continuous torment of a one-sided love affair.
In a whirlwind of happenings, all the mysteries are solved. The identity of the unknown woman, the disappearance of the girlfriend, and finally Ciccio's sexual abstinence comes to an end
