Storyline

Il professor Ianniello sostiene che il bradisismo che da secoli interessa la zona di Pozzuoli è prodotto dalla grande madre, la terra. Ma le grandi madri si trovano anche fra la gente comune e fra queste vi è Rosa Priore, famosa per la sua cucina ed in particolare per il suo ragù. E tra sabato, domenica e lunedì, iniziando con un pranzo a cui partecipano altre a Rosa, il marito Peppino, i tre figli e i coniugi Iannello si sfiora la tragedia causata da Don Peppino che da tre mesi, visti i cambiamenti nei suoi confronti da parte della moglie, sospetta una sua tresca con il professor Iannello. Ma perchè mai Rosa avrà cambiato atteggiamento nei confronti del marito? Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

An appreciation of one of Sophia's best films.
6 August 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This wonderful movie was directed by Lina Wertmuller from the great Neapolitan comedy-drama by Eduardo De Filippo. It stars Sophia Loren, Luca De Filippo (son of the playwright-actor), Alessandra Mussolini (Loren's niece and granddaughter of the dictator), Luciano De Crescenzo. It may be the best film ever made by Loren after TWO WOMEN. It is also one of Wertmuller's best films because, for once, she puts aside her annoying eccentricities and becomes a servant to the material, which is first-rate. Over the years many directors wanted to translate this story of marital jealousy, including Martin Scorsese, Paul Marursky, and Robert Altman. Ultimately it fell into the hands of Wertmuller, a Neapolitan herself, whose direction captures the ebb and flow of turbulent emotions centering on a couple caught in the web of love and jealousy. Set in a village near Naples (actually Pozzuoli, where Loren grew up), the main action is centered on a three-day period surrounding an Italian family ritual of Sunday dinner where everyone awaits the traditional ragu' sauce. Small misunderstandings set off a chain of dramatic events as the story of a husband and wife, Peppino and Rosa, unfolds. The husband's jealousy is ignited when Rosa invites Peppino's imagined rival, Janiello, and his wife to come to spend the weekend at their home...and the emotional fireworks begin! A famous production of De Filippo's original play was directed by Franco Zeffirelli at the National Theatre in London with Laurence Olivier as the Othello-like husband.
