Storyline

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

Voluptuous Cleopatra comes twice!!
1 November 2017 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

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!!

Resume:

First watch: 1989 / How many: 3 / Source: TV-DVD / Rating: 6
