    Vibrant use of colors, framing, background, and politics influence how we as an audience feels about every character in the film before we even get to know them. This amount of control over the audience is a drastic and well-accomplished feat that modern directors struggle with from project to project.

    A comical and satirical tryst! Delight in Wertmuller's trademark themes of politics and sex. This film adds the differences between Northern and Southern Italy and honor to the mix. The seduction is politically oriented, as you will see with the hilariously, ubiquitous presence of the Mafia. Sicilian concepts of a man and his honor is revealed in Mimi's relationship with his wife, his mistress, his wife's lover's wife, which all somehow become convoluted with politics. Wertmuller, Giannini, and Melato have not reached their heights, but all of the elements of their later masterworks are present in this film.

    I had enjoyed other films by Lina Wertmüller more. In this one the screenplay was distracted without a vision but i liked the story.

    Extremely ridiculous and highly immoral, but very funny.

    One of the greatest comedies ever made. Wertmuller's hilarous indictment on machismo and Man's precarious moral economy ultimaley, despite all of the laughs, serves as a cautionary tale concerning the inability to reconcile the personal with the political. Everybody should see this film.
