In the 1960s a law introducing divorce in Italy was strongly opposed by the Church and Italians were divided between "favorevoli" (in favour of divorce) and "contrari" (opposers). In this "Scusi lei e' favorevole o contrario?" Alberto Sordi plays his usual role of the little italian rascal: he makes business with the clergy, proclaims himself a 100% Roman Catholic and a strong opposer of divorce, but has a really peculiar private life, living separated from his wife (Giulietta Masina) and playing the whole week with six girl-friends, one for day; and only on Sunday he finally takes a rest...
It's really difficult to call this a masterpiece; Sordi is good as usual, but nothing different from usual; and 35 years after, almost everything seems dated in this movie.
