Storyline

Andrea Rossi-Colombotti, a U.N. official and modern-day Casanova, cannot get aroused unless there's danger in sex, but women and society are too compliant, so he's often impotent. A psychiatrist warns him it will get worse, and he should be celibate. Andrea tries and fails at that, abandons his fiancée, finds the occasional life-threatening liaison, and pursues a woman tethered to a dull but murderous husband. Will Andrea find pleasure and fulfillment, or is he doomed to pursue and then go limp when the pursuit is successful? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

An excellent, underrated Italian comedy
8 June 2015 | by pgetsosSee all my reviews

It's an excellent comedy, with multiple moments of laughter, 2 of the most beautiful women in the world at that moment, and a fantastic appearance from Mastroianni.

The plot is simple, yet effective enough to develop feelings for "Andrea", in his continuous search of sexual pleasure under danger.

The production is in rather good shape, despite being 50-years old film. I just have some small complains about the sound, sometimes is a bit off.

It's really a shame this film isn't more well-known. Really recommended!
