WARNING MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS: Now on netflix but otherwise hard to find in the USA. This Italian style sex farce has a great cast, including four of the greatest European beauties of the sixties; an amusing and absurd script; and inept production values. The meager plot? Four prosperous married women, friends since they were known as "the four virgins" at school, all commit serial adultery. Their husbands are oblivious, or even enable them to carry on scandalously.
Ursula Andress beds men who resemble her father, despite her hapless handsome spouse Brett Halsey. Virna Lisi can't keep track of who she has sex with, or in what car. Marisa Mell is an accidental stripper. And Claudine Auger's wealthy husband stupidly hands her off to a younger man. Mr. Cassel, a masterful French farceur in other films, e.g. The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, is just another goofy cuckold here.
The characters' opulent life styles are dazzling: bold op art clothes, white furs, mansions, shiny new Ferraris and Lancias. Bottom line: a flashy farce with gorgeous women and clueless husbands, blending class envy and warfare.
