an Italian sex comedy in four segments
10 November 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Another one of those multi segment multi star Italian sex comedies popular in the 60s featuring a cast of beautiful popular film stars of European cinema of the day. The best segment is the one on the train involving a soldier and a beautiful widow in the same compartment, hilarious BUT the film is blessed by the presence of the enchanting Miss Lilli Palmer, my personal favorite actress. Her segment is not the best but she is fabulous as usual. There is also the presence of the lovely Catherine Spaak, a shorter career than many of her contemporaries but she is nonetheless a European screen beauty of her era and very very sexy in a subtle way. Not a great film but more than a few chuckles.
