Storyline

A gentleman by the name of Bachi dies but can't be admitted into heaven because of an evil action committed during his lifetime. He is given the opportunity to return to the living for a half day. Finding himself embroiled in an amorous relationship, the gentleman forgets what he had permission to come back to the living for. Back at the gate of Saint Peter's, he feels he has lost his last chance and is doomed. Instead he discovers that that half day, and its chance to love, has redeemed him. Written by Gerald A. DeLuca <ItalianGerry@home.com>

Trivia

Screenwriters Vitaliano Brancati and 'Suso Cecchi d'Amico' did not like the film and tried to convince producer Carlo Civallero to have it removed from the Venice Film Festival. On the other hand, Cesare Zavattini, who originated the story, pushed for the film to be entered in the competition. When it received largely negative press, Zavattini made it known all round that he did not have anything to do with the screenplay. This marked the end of the once successful partnership between Zavattini and Suso Cecchi D'Amico. See more »
