This is a still rather early movie for Ornella Muti, while she was on a good way to become a more serious actress, continuing soon after this little known movie with international box-office hits such as "Flash Gordon" and "Il bisbetico domato". Tony Musante, usually a better choice for a villain, plays Ornella's lover Paolo in a tragic romance which is dominated by the disagreement whether the couple should have children or not. The movie is well handled by veteran director Enrico Maria Salerno, if you take the opening for example when Sena (Ornella) refuses to talk to Paolo who becomes increasingly desperate.
Yet again, this is just another movie about beautiful people who walk all day long on the beach or visit art exhibitions, contemplating the meaning of life, while they never seem to work for a living. Last not least, I want to mention there is a great part for Mario Scaccia as an eccentric doctor whose enthusiasm makes you believe in anything "the doctor ordered".
