This film could be included in a trilogy with I Vitelloni(1953) of
Federico Fellini and Main Street(1956)Calle Mayor(original title) of
Juan Antonio Bardem, all three films have in common a group of friends
who spend some time together and share their experiences with women.
It's one of the first films of what later would become the expert in
Mafia movies, Damiano Damiani. We have a very good bunch of actors,
headed by Walter Chiari. Joining him, Francisco Rabal, Letícia Román,
Riccardo Garrone, Dominique Boschero, Paul Guers, Gastone Moschin,
Jacqueline Pierreux, Mino Guerrini, Mimma Di Terlizzi, Livia Contardi.
The film is not a comedy, as noted, is just a drama, a strong realistic
drama, very well played, in the good old Italian 60's style.
