Skillfully written, with a penetrating, almost brutal glimpse of Sicily and its antiquated way of life, it has been directed by Pietro Germi with lagless pace and consistent incisiveness, evoking constant chuckles rather than isolated guffaws.

It is the most subversive jab at Mastrioanni's chauvinist characters possible, circumstantial metaphysics in which the lecher is targeted by the very film he inhabits.

It remains a terrific entertainment, a European corollary to Preston Sturges.

If you're in the mood for a cynical, time-traveling Italian vacation, you couldn't do much better than this.

Mastroianni, who was Oscar-nominated, truly shines in this wildly funny, darkly humorous Italian comedy, which was a huge international hit.

The cast are perfect, the always watchable Mastroianni excelling in a tailor-made role.

A brilliant comic performance from Mastroianni which has been compared to the deadpan style of Keaton.
