a fine sEXY italian comedy
31 August 2002 | by hugobolso-1See all my reviews

Italians are good sexy story telling. And this picture is not the exception. There are four story with 4 of the biggest sex symbol of the sixties. Virna Lissi, ELke Summer, Monica Vitti and Lollo. The number too and three are only ok. But is terrible funny and sexy the first and last story. The first one is about a young marriage of a gorgeous mommie's girl (Virna Lissi) and a terrenal man (Italian capocomic Ninno Manfredi. He wants have sex with his young babe, but her mother called. And she prefers to talk with her mum that be care of her husband. So he decide to have sex with the more complacient neighbor. And number 4 of one of the most beautiful women of all Ttime Gina Lollobrigida who play a wife who wants to seduce the innocent bishop's nephew(Jean Sorel. Lollo here shows all her histrionic (excellent comediant) and physical (see in that suit)talent.
