I remember loving this movie and I look often for its release
I was only 17 or 18 when I saw it but I remember being touched by it. Sylva Koscina plays an unreachable, beautiful, sophisticated woman longed for by a simple, kindly, unflappable tour bus driver (David McCallum).
But all is not as it seems. Evil forces are at work (I can't remember the details). I do remember that David McCallum fits the role of an unfailingly polite, kind and giving man very well and that Sylva Koscina is indeed a thing of beauty. Many shady dealings and much comical happenstance precede a satisfying conclusion.
Definitely not deep but great entertainment. I really wish it would be picked up on DVD.
