that one shot of Ursula Andress is enough reason to see the movie
Italian director Enzo Castellari is not the most well known name, but he got a little bit of publicity thanks to Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds", whose title is based on Castellari's movie "The Inglorious Bastards". Another one of Castellari's movies is the comedy "Le avventure e gli amori di Scaramouche" ("The Loves and Times of Scaramouche" in English). It casts the late Michael Sarrazin as the romantic rogue, trying to woo women in revolutionary France.
I would have liked the movie better had Ursula Andress (as Josephine Bonaparte) gotten more screen time. Even so, there is one shot of her that makes the whole movie worth watching, and another scene has her act out her most iconic appearance in cinema. That's enough reason to see the movie. The rest of the movie is funny, but seems disjointed.
