this film is one of the best examples of tongue-in-cheek, way before post-modernist attitudes were fashionable! see it at all costs!!!! monica vitti is earthy and sexy, dirk bogarde is platinum blond and very, very camp. terence stamp proves that he was one of those incomparable 60's heartthrobs who have read their gramsci and have gotten over with their pasolini!!!!!
