A mysterious leather-clad figure on a motorcycle rides into a deserted rural town in Italy, to the tune of Riz Ortolani's harmonica-driven score. The figure is Miele (Monica Vitti), a motor-mouthed pathological liar supposedly traveling to meet her gangster boyfriend, Big Louie. Miele brushes open the swinging doors of a laundress (Claudia Cardinale) to abandon her hubby and flee to Naples. What follows is a fun-filled road trip, with Miele's dishonesty increasingly transparent as Claudia gains confidence and proves the savvier of the pair.
With her leather-clad, androgynous persona and exhibitionist style, Suzi Quatro became an icon of the 70s glam rock scene; she later expanded her career to include acting, appearing in TV's HAPPY DAYS as "Leather Tuscadero." Quatro paved the way for the riot grrrl movement with her tough, streetwise attitude and her skills as a musician with a hard-rock, edgy style. At the height of her career she scored such hits as "Stumblin' In," "48 Crash," "Daytona Demon" and the number 1 "Devil Gate Drive." LEATHER FOREVER combines rare home movies and little-known music videos with live footage from Suzi's 2003 Stuttgart, Germany tour, as well as footage from the upcoming documentary on Suzi's life entitled NAKED UNDER LEATHER.
