Emerenziano (Ugo Tognazzi) is the middle-aged tax inspector who is in search of a wealthy wife. He travels to northern Italy where he meets three sisters, who, though wealthy, are not by any stretch of the imagination young or beautiful. He decides to marry one of them and then takes the other two as mistresses. The virginal sisters are slowly transformed into man hungry mavens, each possessing their own individual sexual talents. It all seems to be work out fine for him until he meets a young waitress who he entangles himself with and as a result becomes a helpless prisoner subjected to the whims of the love starved females.

Overlooked Italian comedy gem highlighting the great Ugo Tognazzi
A sardonically funny look at a Lothario's nightly tiptoe through the tulips. Ugo Tognazzi, who is best known in the US for La Cage aux Folles, is a middle-aged man who decides to settle down and marries an unusual heiress. His virile prowess eventually extends to her two sisters but, when the maid catches his eye... Each sister plays an instrument, suffice it to say, the trio are collectively bewitching though not conventionally attractive. This film is curiously similar to 1987's The Witches of Eastwick. Perhaps because of the obvious story dissimilarity, the female leads in Eastwick being witches, no one has mentioned it.
