Ursula Andress, voted the greatest Bond Girl ever, sports another iconic bikini, and this time it literally kills! Set in the near future, the film opens with Andress killing her penultimate victim in “The Big Hunt”, a reality-TV style game show which selects both ‘Hunter’ and ‘Victim’ from participants; the two then chase one another around the globe: kill your 10th victim and you win millions! Andress’ final victim is the cool, sun-loving Italian Marcello (Mastroianni) who also needs to notch up another kill!
Oscar® Winning director Elio Petri’s groundbreaking film heralded generations of films, like “Rollerball” or Schwarzenegger’s “Running Man”, about gladiatorial-death shows and announced our age of increasingly outrageous reality-TV and the latest fascination with “Hunger Games” dystopia. Its exquisite Pop-Art visuals, and humorous visual observations have influenced countless films, none more than the Austin Powers sets and costumes.
