Storyline

Enrico Melotti, a middle-aged businessman, is dominated by a fierce as naive form of machismo and sees women only for what they can give him, both in terms of emotional and sexual satisfaction, and in terms of labor services and domestic labor. Therefore, he has a difficult relationship with his wife Marisa, his secretary/lover Claudia and his maid Teresa.

During a business trip to America, his friend Arturo shows him how he solved the same problems. At Arturo's home, Enrico is astonished in seeing Caterina, a female-looking robotic maid that does all domestic chores better than a human because it doesn't need to sleep or feed.

The man and the machine...
25 July 2001 | by Il_KoreanoSee all my reviews

This is a not bad movie. Alberto Sordi speak about the affair of the man with the cold machine. This is affectionate to Enrico (Sordi), but when a girl come in the house of this, Caterina (the machine) have a transformation, and destroyed all the flat! And Enrico understand this: the machine have a earth! And Caterina become a "wife" for this. A not bad story, and Alberto Sordi is a good actor in this movie.

Vote for the actor/actress: 5/6 (It's the max for this film!) Vote for the director: 6/7 (in some scenes this film is a thriller!) Final vote: 6 (good!)
