It is hard to believe that two screen legends could combine to create such a turkey. I don't recall this film being shown in the USA and if it was, it was understandably not widely promoted. As a long time admire of both Julie Andrews and Marcello Mastrianni, I looked forward to seeing this film after discovering it in a video catalog. I had never heard of it and expected much more. How a prim English lady like Julie Andrew's character could be in the least attracted to the drunken, aging, unkempt sot portrayed by Mastrianni strains all credulity. The fact that there are few reviews of this film on this site confirms that it justifiably did not have wide circulation. We who remember the chemistry of Marcello with Sophia Loren and the multi-talented Miss Andrews having shined in many roles are saddened that they would lend themselves to this shallow farce.
