Four of the greatest Italian directors – Federico Fellini, Luchino Visconti, Vittorio De Sica and Mario Monicelli – join forces with show-stoppers Sophia Loren, Anita Ekberg and Romy Schneider in a social satire mocking the attitudes of Italian 60’s society.
A sensuous pin up on a gigantic poster comes to life to haunt a puritan, a married woman finds a way of dealing with her husband’s passion for gambling and call-girls, a sacristan wins a night with a beautiful fairground woman in a village lottery and a married couple’s mishap enables them to buy their own house.
Four arresting tales of women’s empowerment and the sexual revolution in Italy’s 1960s boom years. This light-hearted hymn to life is presented for the first time in both English and original Italian, with improved subtitles, and shown here as originally intended by the filmmakers in the original widescreen film format – now in restored HD.
