This semi-amusing sex (romance) comedy has four separate stories of equal quality, with the first one being slightly better. The 1st episode with the enchanting Elke Sommer is lovely and touching and if there is an actress with a sweeter smile than Ms. Sommer's, I don't know who it is.
The 2nd one about a love-starved husband trying to get his wife's attention while she reads or talks on the phone is a crack-up. Nino Mandredi (husband) is brilliant with his comic timing and frustration and the gorgeous Virna Lisi is stunning as always.
The 3rd one with the lovely Monica Vitti runs out of steam but Monica Vitti was a wonderful presence in foreign films of the 1960's.
The 4th with the curvaceous and sexy Gina Lollobrigida (with either blonde or red hair) is helped immeasurably by the bovine presence of Akim Tamiroff. None of these episodes are classic, but I spent a pleasant 2 hours watching them. These "teasing" "sex" comedies have a life of their own, although I wish Elke Sommer hadn't been dubbed. Oh well! A 5 out of 10.
