Vittorio De Sica,
Cleopatra è una donna bellissima ma ha un piccolo difetto: quando un ufficiale della guardia le piace, dopo una notte d'amore lo fa avvelenare dal fido Tortul perchè Marcantonio non lo venga a sapere. Cesarino è un ufficiale nuovo, non ancora al corrente del piccolo vizio di Cleopatra e subito accetta di fare la guardia alla regina. Quando entra non trova però la vera sovrana, ma Nisca, una schiava sua sosia che il perfido Tortul aveva scovato per permettere a Cleopatra di andare in incognito da Marcantonio. Ma, passata la prima notte, la vera Cleopatra torna...Written by
Baldinotto da Pistoia

According to some sources, the original European edit contained more nudity on the part of Sophia Loren during the bath scene. The 2003 Region 1 DVD release includes a bath scene with partial nudity that appears to have been edited into the film from another, lower quality print. (The DVD is also dubbed into English).

Silly Italian style comedy,leading by Sordi's self humor who has priceless action as always,he brings the laughs and Loren brings the voluptuous beauty,never has a perfect Cleopatra in cinema like her,evil, heartless, cold as hell and gorgeous.... some scenes is a real gem,like in Dugeon where Sordi has a terrific acting,and a original and imaginative scene when Sordi describe your adventure to save a beauty woman and get a Cleopatra's ring...simply hilarious,maybe it's foolish but never bored,by the way the official DVD release in Brazil had only 70 minutes,eight minutes are missing for the original movie....So for Loren and Sordi 6 out 10!!
First watch: 1989 / How many: 3 / Source: TV-DVD / Rating: 6
