A delightful comedy
23 April 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Delightful comic farce set in Italy in the 1960's, playing-off the interaction between English and Italian stereotypes par excellence! Virni Lisi is poutingly gorgeous as ever and Terry Thomas is - well, himself! They don't make them like this anymore! See it!
