Evil thoughts, bad film.
The great Ugo Tognazzi is the director and main actor of an ugly movie that is not comic but highly erotic, at the limit of the hard-core. This can obviously hurt all the spectators expecting a typical Italian comedy as in Tognazzi's tradition. The numerous male and female integral nudes and the explicit sex scenes are offered in a patinated but psychologically disturbed way. Only the solar presence of Edwige Fenech, at the utmost of her extraordinary sex-appeal, smoothes the sick and maniac atmosphere crossing all the movie. The plot is simple: Ugo Tognazzi (Mario Marani) is a lawyer of Milan who is obsessed in thinking to be betrayed by his splendid wife Francesca (Edwige Fenech). After one hundred minutes of evil thoughts, he will have evidence that his wife is faithful, while he is taking the plane together with his secretary and lover (Verushka).
