Paolo Davanza in Viva

Viva

2007 UR

Harking back to 1970s sexploitation flicks, this colorful and campy romp from writer-director Anna Biller tells the tale of suburban housewife Barbi (Biller), who attempts to find her inner vixen after her husband, Rick (Chad England), abandons her in 1972. Changing her name to Viva and leaping into the middle of the sexual revolution, she explores the worlds of hippies, nudists, prostitutes, bohemians and bisexuals.
