A lightweight comedy with a few intertwining story lines connected by the figure of "Lady Eva" (Franca Valeri), a mousy woman whose public persona is that of a love guru writing for a popular magazine, Piccola Posta is mostly harmless fluff, both when it deals with Lady Eva's hopeless crush for a veterinarian and when it follows a miserable cop (De Filippo) whose wife is obsessed with Eva's advices.

The movie shifts gears when it focuses on a sleazy, smug, morally repellent nobleman (Sordi) managing a retirement home with sinister efficiency. As tasteless and cartoonish as it is, the plot line happens to be rather funny - as usual, Sordi imbues his obnoxious caricatures with high-charged, manic glee.

The most interesting fact about Piccola Posta is how Lucio Fulci - known for his gory, grimy horror flicks - is one of the writers: the equivalent of Stephen King penning the script for You've Got Mail.
