Storyline

Elena lives on a Tuscan farm, separated from her ineffectual husband Leonardo, who is more concerned with his mistress Lolli than his wife or two daughters, Franca and Malvina. This collection of female figures inhabiting a world virtually without men is completed by Elena's sister Claudia and Elena's housekeeper Fosca. The only male in the house is a senile old uncle who spends most of his time knitting. This unusual stable female environment is suddenly shaken by several crises. Written by .

A week screenplay with many miscast stars
19 June 2007 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Nothing to share with the masterpieces of the fifties, and even with more solid screenplays like Parenti serpenti (Poisonous Relations). It is unbelievable that this modest film, in which most of the great stars are completely miscast, has won so many awards (all Italian, by the way). The humor is poor, the story is full of stereotypes, the dialogs have no strength: sorry for the fans of Monicelli (I am one) but this film adds nothing to his career. Let's take the episode in which uncle Gugo is taken to a sort of clinic for mental diseases, where an odd priest, more similar to a salesman, persuades Elena and others to leave the old man there, without any formal and medical discussion; or the other, in which the same uncle Guga, after a so called "car accident", goes back home alone, 20 km far. Is it a farce, or something serious ? Let's forget it.
