In this movie we can find the best of italian movie-makers of 30's (the age of "telefoni bianchi", the "white phones", in relation to comedies in which Wh.-Ph. were often used): Camerini as director, Vittorio De Sica, who worked as actor but years after will be one of the most relevant directors in the world, Bixio & Cherubini who wrote one classic song of italian music "Parlami d'amore Mariù" ("Mary, speak about love to me"). The plot is easy, the scenario is in an old Milan, but... seeing this movie means going back in years in which... love was the most important thing.
