Curiously, in the end credits, only six stories, instead of seven, with the associated cast are displayed. The third story (with Vittorio Gassman) in which Shirley Mac Laine plays the character Linda is omitted. See more »
In "The Suicides" vignette, the characters scrawl a French profanity on the wall of their hotel room, yet when they play a long scene in front of a mirror in which the word is reflected, the word doesn't appear backwards as it normally would. See more »
Seven mini plots, funny or sad but all in all quite witty. How far can sex, or love, or the urge for something new... can turn a man into a fool !
De Sica's movie a typical example of the 1960's Italian cinema. He could have adopted an even more brittle style and turned the whole thing into a complete farce. May be this movie is a bit too serious.
