All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

An insightful document that recognized the strains, pitfalls and hypocrisies of the sexual revolution even as it was beginning.

While it's hardly subtle, it is compelling.

February 5, 2016 | Full Review…

Pietrangeli's neglected autopsy of modern showbiz culture would be a satire if it were funny - instead, and despite the bouncy vigor of its star, the movie's narrative goes down like gelato and then slowly clots in your throat.

A fine motion picture, although Sandrelli's performance is its only truly eye-opening feature.

March 6, 2016 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Adriana's essential vacuity, central as it is the film's point, doesn't give us enough to hold onto, so by the time the narrative is winding its way to its climax, everything has blurred into one long rush of nothing.

March 2, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The grim drama works because of a star performance by Sandrelli.
