| Bravo! Sexy, light fun...Italian Style
There are four episodes (60s style) directed by four excellent Italian directors (e.g., Monicelli, Bolognini) at their peak. The women Capucine, Raquel Welch, Monica Vitti and Claudia Cardinale are obviously at the top of their performances too. The best and very original episodes were with Vitti and Cardinale which is what the 9 rating is for. The other two episodes are OK (6).

Raquel is her early days can't act (not until she did Broadway). She looks amazing, but she's like looking at a $5,000 plasma HD TV turned off...nothing going on but looks good.

Monica is hilarious in her episode which involves some who's chasing who... Cardinale is terrific and gorgeous as a gypsy girl involves with babies (funky to check out where she lives...). They are the life of this film in contrast to the coolness of Capucine and Welch.

This film is the least know of the episodic commedia all'italiana genre (e.g., Boccaccio '70) It is difficult to get this on DVD (although I have seen copies perhaps unauthorized so the quality of a print you might find may not be good). Hopefully it will be digitally reworked on DVD.
