Storyline

Alla fine del '600 nel napoletano sotto la dominazione spagnola, il mugnaio Luca cerca di arrabattarsi per non pagare le gabelle che impone Don Teofilo, il governatore, con il consiglio di Gardunia; da quella sulla pioggia (anche quando non c'è) a quella sul matrimonio. In questo è aiutato dalla bella moglie Carmela; diventa così amico di tutti i potenti del vicinato che sperano di conquistare le grazie della moglie. Tra i potenti vi è anche il governatore che, dietro consiglio di Gardunia, fa imprigionare Luca per avere mano libera con la moglie. Ma anche nei migliori piani le cose non vanno come previsto.

A naturally gifted wife could contribute to her husband's success.
22 August 2004 | by (leidschendam, nederland) – See all my reviews

A naturally gifted wife could contribute to her husband's success. But there are some limits. Either you could let your wife's beauty to steer the helm of your destiny to the end or you could allow your honour to change the course of your success. It is a decision a man has to make when he finds himself at some delicate crossroads.

In this film, apart from the above-mentioned dilemma, there are beautiful colours, beautiful places, beautiful people and very beautiful ladies, that is, the miller's wife and the governor's wife.

I have enjoyed seeing that film and I still enjoy it when I see it from time to time. It is like a beautiful painting of that period placed in a museum.
