Based on satirical short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle about a vain, egotistical Etienne Gerard, a French brigadier serving during the Napoleonic Wars. He thinks he's the best soldier and lover that ever lived and intends to prove it.
Marta e Nanda sono due amiche, una telefonista e l'altra manicure, che vivono assieme, ma hanno aspirazioni diverse: Marta è alla ricerca del vero amore, quello assoluto; Nanda della sicurezza di un matrimonio. Ma il rapporto tra le due amiche non va troppo bene perchè non appena Marta trova un uomo, subito Nanda cerca di accaparrarselo a scopo matrimonio. Alla fine Marta troverà il tenero Pietro, dolce e gentile. E' il vero amore? L'uomo perfetto con cui vivere la vita? Marta ne è convinta e lo sposa. Ma, come dice il proverbio, non esiste rosa senza spine, e che spine! Written by

The most interesting aspect about "Diary of a Telephone Operator" is that the sex-obsessed characters here are women instead of men for a change. However, whether you are a woman or a man, odds are that you'll find this so-called comedy very tiresome. There's not much of a plot here, for starters, and the movie takes forever to get going. And when it does, it moves very slowly. The movie is more a collection of vignettes than anything else. This might not be so bad had the movie been funny, but it really isn't. The humor is too low-key, and it's hard to warm up to the lead characters since they aren't very sympathetic.
By the way, despite the title, there's actually very little telephone operating on display here.
