No longer juicy
4 November 1999 | by (Canterbury, England) – See all my reviews

Italians were always fond of episodic comedies, and this falls right into the heydays of this genre, the 1960s. For its time it was regarded quite juicy, both in the subject matter (love, wooing, seduction, etc.) and its visual realisation; Ms. Lollobrigida even got into some trouble with the authorities over her sexy dress. Clearly, times have changed - just three or four years after it was made nobody would have raised an eyebrow. The film 'feels' a bit like "Sex in the City (1998)" transferred into a 1960s mediterranean environment.

Changing attitudes is more a problem than an asset for the film today: it needs to unease and shock people just a little in order to keep its audience on the edge, without alienating a mainstream crowd. If the shock's gone much of the interest's gone. What remains is an interesting document of morals in the mid 1960s.

Unfortunately, the Amazon release (double feature with Sweet Ecstasy) has rather poor picture quality and can only be recommended for Lollobrigida-completists.
