Funny, charming, delightful --and thought-provoking
3 January 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is a wonderful comedy. It is very well cast and well acted; both Ugo Tognazzi and Claudia Cardinale are excellent and the film has many fun-filled moments. However, I would not describe and classify this movie as a "light" work. The husband's 'idee fixe' might give the viewers the impression of a silly, obsessive, and paranoid person and (I will admit it) his behaviour does make the audience laugh. He is convinced and determined that his wife is cheating on him --even though she is not being unfaithful. When he looks at her it becomes obvious to him that she is a very attractive woman. And, all the men around her must be dying to be with her. The key issue, however, is (to use a proper term) his "projection". The main reason of his jealousy is his infidelities. If he were in a psychoanalyst's couch talking about his feelings the picture -no pun intended- would have become crystal clear indeed. I hope this gem will be available on DVD --soon.
