Not at the same level as Bicycle Thieves or Umberto D., but it's another masterpiece all the same, bringing a much-needed humor, warmth, and sexuality to the director's work.

In a change of pace, De Sica directed this three-act comedy, which won the Best Foreign Language Oscar, featuring charming performances from Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni at their prime.

De Sica may seduce us with his breezy comedy but concealed beneath is his usual preoccupation with class, making the laughs in Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow delightfully brittle.

Audience Reviews for Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (Ieri, oggi, domani)

3 movie shorts with the great Sophia Loren and other Italian actors. Its all in Italian and has English subtitles. The first story is the best she sells cigarettes on the black market when police come to arrest her she is with child, in Italy if you pregnant you can go to jail so each time the law comes to arrest her she is again with child 8 children later, kind of funny the other 2 shorts leave a lot to be desired. 3 stars 11-8-12

Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni star in three stories about sex and love. What a delightful Italian comedy. Loren and Mastroianni are a classic pair, and each story allows them to explore a different facet of sexual chemistry. They rise to each challenge, and they're a delight to watch. The first story, about a couple who squirts out babies in order to avoid debtors' prison, defies realism, but it allows Loren to strut and saunter her way around the world-weary, oversexed Mastroianni. The second story, about a man and woman escaping her husband for a weekend in the country, sets an adversarial relationship between the two Italian stars. The final story contains one of the most hilarious, off-the-wall seduction sequences I've ever seen, and Mastroianni howls his way into our hearts -- broad comedy at its best. Overall, Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow is an Italian classic and a must-see.

An anthology of three short stories, each starring Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni and dealing with sex in some manner, and each amusing in a different way. The first story is about a woman who continuously had children in order to avoid going to jail, the second is about two new lovers taking a car trip, and the third concerns a boy preparing to enter seminary, a prostitute, and a very frustrated man. I thought it was worth watching, especially for Sophia Loren fans.
