PROPERTY IS NO LONGER A THEFT

A newly restored 35mm print of the rarely screened “proto-giallo, Brechtian satire” PROPERTY IS NO LONGER A THEFT (1973) plays this weekend as part of the MOMA series UGO TOGNAZZI—TRAGEDIES OF A RIDICULOUS MAN.*

Directed by Elio Petri, the film stars Flavio Bucci as a Marxist bank clerk-turned-thief and Tognazzi as his target. The film is the third in Petri’s “social neurosis” trilogy, which includes the classic Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion and The Working Class Goes to Heaven.
