Al brigadiere dei Carabinieri d'un paesino veneto viene affidato l'incaricato di svolgere indagini sull'arrivo d'un disco volante. Durante l'inchiesta interroga un gruppo di persone che dichiarano d'aver visto realmente i marziani. Alla fine, soltanto Vittoria, una povera contadina vedova e con molti figli, riesce ad impadronirsi d'un marziano, e lo vende al padrone. La madre dell'uomo, però, sopprime il marziano, accusa la contadina di truffa e spedisce il figlio in manicomio. In questo modo tutti i protagonisti della vicenda sono accusati di essere dei visionari ed il sensazionale avvenimento viene ben presto sepolto nell'indifferenza generale. Written by rosebud6

Sexy Saucer Girls
20 December 2002 | by (Norfolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Fairly typical Italian "light" fare from the 1960's, this tale mixes comedy and light sexual farce with some success. The serious and somewhat slow Police Inspector and his bumbling assistant investigate reports of "strange goings-on" in a rural community. A flying saucer with more bells & whistles than Rube Goldberg ever dreamed of dispenses comely female aliens, dressed (barely) in silver "bathing suits" with strategically-placed bubbles who wander about -- mixing in with a "Mardi Gras", and are chased by giddy males to no avail. The highlight of this film is the music, which is haunting. The true shame is that this film is not available on VHS or DVD, and that the soundtrack is not to be found. This film used to be a staple of "late night" "fill-the-time" movie features at local television affiliates.
