Celebrating 50 years since 1968, with the Radical Film Network (RFN), we present an experimental comedy from Italian cine-agitator Elio Petri. 

A bank cashier, who's allergic to banknotes, quits his job after an armed robbery. He decides to start a new life, as a thief. Petri plays around with the famous Proudhon quote 'Property is theft' in a dark satire on ownership as a compulsion of the human condition.
