One of the best comedies ever
1 January 2005 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

I have seen that movie more than 10 times and most certainly will see it again. It is funny,witty, and elegant. That movie is about a young Italian woman (the beginning of XX century) who was bred without any knowledge of sex life. She is full of stereotypes about how a lady should behave and she is about to be a wife. Hwever, it is not so simple for her (of course). Speaking about genre, Mio Dio, Come Sono Cadutto in Basso is a parody of saccharine sentimental movies about 'real ladies', who know nothing about men, marriage, sex and so on. The actors are brilliant, especially the heroine. The lines are witty. I do not agree with the word 'mediocre' about it. I assess it as excellent and most definitely recommend that movie as a very good comedy, especially if you like to laugh at stereotypical ladies of the beginning of XX century.
