Deserves wider distribution than it got
30 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't understand the negative or so-so responses to this. I saw it with my wife on the first day it opened when visiting NYC, without the dubious benefit of having read reviews, because the combination of Gianatti, Loren, Mastroianni, and Wertmuller was irresistible. Both of us were amazed that the critics didn't go bananas over it, as we did. The acting, the script (that was political without hitting you on the head with politics), and the ambiguous ending (with Loren telling each of the men who is the father of her child-to-be) were just lovely. I guess the lukewarm reviews prevented it from getting the wide distribution it deserved. This is yet another film waiting to be released in DVD in its complete version.
