The beginning did not appeal to me, so I turned it off after 5 minutes of viewing. Poor quality film.

What a thrill!
Sophia, Marcelo, De Sica .... Missed these Italian movies, missed these charming actors.
Missed thesuggested reality behind the stories.

A mixed comedy/drama with a stunning performance by Sophia Loren (AA Nomination for best actress), and Marcello Mastroianni plays a sublime cad, with a sensitive streak.

The DVD recording lacks quality, but the film is worth it.

C'est a voir.

There was a time in the 60s when Italy seemed to have a surplus of gorgeous leading ladies, dapper leading men, clever directors, and stylish cinematographers. Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastorianni were two of the biggest stars of the era and it makes sense they co-starred in a bunch of films together, of which this and "Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow" are the best known. It's an enjoyable, lightweight romp with some occasional serious notes about male/female relationships. Directed by neorealist pioneer Vittorio De Sica ("Bicycle Thieves") and produced by Loren's husband, Carlo Ponti. The title is a take off on another Mastroianni film, "Divorce Italian Style," which takes a darker, more cynical look at marriage and relationships and is worth seeking out.

This is one of my favorite movies of all time! It is a foreign film from the '60's, but one can relate to it today. It has comedy, romance and drama all in one film. The movie format is not only with subtitles, but also dubbed in English,(for those of us who don't want to "read" movies but prefer to "hear" them instead). In my opinion a great movie!
