Audience Reviews for The Law (La legge)

Who's in charge here? Love and lust in an Italian town. Gina Lollobrigida and Melina Mercouri are the main women; Yves Montand and Marcello Mastroianni are the main men. A nice variety of human emotions are shown. Interesting view of an older Italy. I'll be watching this one again.
