Current and fresh after 54 years!
30 August 2018 | by RodrigAndrisanSee all my reviews

A top quality cast: Ugo Tognazzi, Claudia Cardinale (both young, virile and beautiful), Bernard Blier, Salvo Randone and, in a small role, Gian Maria Volontè. Another great success of Antonio Pietrangeli, who could have offered us many other masterpieces if he did not died only at the age of 49.
