A toast to those beautiful, funny and sexy 1960's stars
19 September 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

If you like watching Italian multi-segment sex comedies -- yes, they made them by the hundreds in the 1960s -- this might be one of the most charming and enjoyable. Good production values, fine directors (Bolognini, Salce, Pietrangeli and champion Monicelli), efficient male co-stars (Jean Sorel, Enrico Maria Salerno, Gastone Moschin and great Alberto Sordi), simple but not bad stories (especially fine is Queen Marta/Welch episode).

But above all, you'll be delighted with these four magnificently beautiful, funny & sexy ladies: force of nature Claudia Cardinale as a carefree young gypsy mother (in one of her best comedy roles); supreme comedienne Monica Vitti who delivers here no less than a masterclass on comedy timing; gorgeous Raquel Welch, sexier than in any of her American films; and classy Capucine, whose character becomes very naughty when she drinks...and then forgets all about it. Wonderful for a lazy evening. Try to see it in the original Italian version with subtitles, so you won't miss Vitti & Cardinale's sexy, husky voices.
