Cool!
3 October 2018 | by RodrigAndrisanSee all my reviews

Four different stories but having a common theme: Sex. Monica Vitti is seductive as always, in an episode not exactly for her superior value. Claudia Cardinale looks gorgeous and makes a fresh, original role. Raquel Welch it's a sexy presence, like she used to be in almost all her movies. Enrico Maria Salerno, Gastone Moschin and Jean Sorel, exactly in this order, help the three beauties, Vitti, Cardinale, Welch, how they can best. The final episode is the best of all. Thanks to the generous subject and especially thanks to the great acting of Alberto Sordi and the beautiful and talented Capucine.
