Storyline

Domenico, a successfull businessman, with an eye for the girls, begins an affair with Filumena when she is 17 years old. She becomes a prostitute, but also becomes the mistress of Domenico. He eventually sets her up in an apartment, and she works for him in his various businesses. She secretly bears three children, who are raised by nannys. Domenico starts planning to marry a young employee. Filumena tricks him into marriage by pretending to be dying. Domenico annuls the marriage. Filumena then tells him of the three children. She says that one of the children belongs to Domenico, but will not say which one is his. You start to believe that all of the children could be his, and Domenico then marries Filumena again, this time willingly. Written by Steve Jordan <jordan@warwick.net>

I loved it!
11 February 2001 | by (Udine, Italy) – See all my reviews

Well I think that you should watch this wonderful Italian film. It is taken from the comedy "Filumena Marturano" by Eduardo De Filippo. Marcello Mastroianni is superb and Sophia Loren is excellent. It's a pity she didn't won the second Oscar as best actress of this film.

The title-song "'O cielo ce manna 'sti 'ccose" by Fred Bongusto is absolutely wonderful.
