Guido, a Roman bank manager, informed by his sister Oriana that his father Armando is seriously ill, leaves his wife Elisa with his son and sets off by car to reach Rosignano Solvay, their hometown. Determined to make the journey in sweet company, he visits Jennifer, his mistress whom he hasn't seen for months. The girl's clear refusal to follow him pushes him to take Anita Watson, a 26-year-old American, who has come to Rome to find an Italian architect she met in Chicago. After a stop in Orbetello, the two bond more and make a detour to the deserted Isola del Giglio.Written by
Scrappy Italian comedy, made up of bits and pieces, manages to plunk down Goldie Hawn in Rome (this before her career got a second wind with "Private Benjamin"). She's an American actress who gets mixed up with her friend's married lover (Giancarlo Giannini). They have little screwball mishaps and misunderstandings before making hot love in a hammock. Sloppily-edited, and with fuzzy sound and gloppy cinematography, the picture would appear to be an almost total loss were it not for the stars, who have a modicum of chemistry. Besides, Goldie's almost always worth a look. *1/2 from ****
