I can't quite get the previous reviewer because when I saw this movie in the Apollo theater on 42nd Street,back in the '60's, it was billed as a comedy. It was a hilarious sex romp. The hero who pretended to be a castrati would romp with the wives of the senators who thought their mates were safe with him. It was a typical Italian comedy with some sad overtones and an unhappy ending but still enjoyable. Oddly enough, my husband saw it in Okinawa when he was serving there. He is the only other person I know who saw this movie. He, too, found it hilarious. I wish they would put this and other Italian classics like Made in Italy on DVD.
