One of the best Sophia Loren Moments
11 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the sweetest Sophia Loren films. I always found she is at her best in movies made in her home country,which is kind of logical too.Marcello is in it,as is a tremendous easy listening soundtrack by Armando Trovaioli. Mastroianni and Loren hit it off,even though Marcello is acting a bit bland. Funny,delightful,silly,sweet. A rainy Sunday afternoon film. See it!
