Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow is an okay movie with solid performances and a solid third story, but the second story is too short and the first one is forgettable. As an anthology movie, it doesn't work as it isn't thematically connected and not one of these stories is particularly interesting or meaningful.

This film consists of three comedic short stories centering around the lives of three different women. Each one stars Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni. The short stories are delightfully funny while thoughtful too, exploring how the roles and expectations of women have changed over time. Lovely use of visual metaphors. Viewers will appreciate the range exhibited by Loren and Mastroianni. They have remarkable chemistry.

Three different relationship stories with the same actors, with the best one also the first one, which takes up the lion share of its running time

This film is broken into 3 segments each telling a different story, but all using Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren. Directed by Vittorio Di Sica("Bicycle Thieves"), it won the Foreign Language Oscar in 1964. Not a great film, but it is amusing at times and worth watching for the star-power of the two leads. Foreign film lovers should give it a try.

Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow is a fun Italian comedy and, despite the cover art and description, it is rated PG. On the disc I received, the transfer looked good and subtitles were fine. It is a good-looking film; Mastroianni's amusing charm and the fiery beauty of Loren make for an entertaining view.

We married for love. It's obvious the will is still there.

This picture delivers three short stories of a very attractive Italian woman and the types of obstacles she needs to overcome to achieve her goals. She attracts many men, but has a main soulmate of sorts that is her main man that wants to love and take care of her. She will need to bat off pursuers and stick with her man if she hopes to find happiness in each story.

"But I could have killed that kid."
"Who cares about that idiot?"

Vittorio De Sica, director of Sunflower, The Voyage, After the Fox, A Place for Lovers, Marriage Italian Style, Two Women, and The Roof, delivers Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow. The storyline for this picture is above average and fun to watch unfold. The dialogue is pretty good as is the acting. The cast includes Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni.

"Let's see if I can catch a customer."

I randomly came across this on Netflix and decided to add it to the queue. This is fairly well done, with some of the stories being better than others. As an overall picture, that's in Italian, I'm not sure it is a must see, but it is worth a viewing if you're a fan of the classics.

"You've been pardoned. You're free."

Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni star in this Italian sex comedy divided into three tales in three cities. In the first and best episode, they are a poor couple selling illegal cigarettes to make ends meet and discover by chance after being busted that Sophia can't go to jail when she is pregnant - 7 kids later and Marcello is tired out, so Sophia winds up in the slammer. In the second episode, Sophia is a rich businessman's wife, slumming it with poor but sexy Marcello - but when she lets him drive her Rolls, it doesn't end well. Finally, in the third episode, Sophia is a classy call girl who accidentally charms her neighbors' grandson who was about to become a priest. In order to persuade him not to give up his calling, she swears off sex for a week, much to the chagrin of Marcello a visiting businessman from Bologna. Ranging from sentimental to wryly funny to a bit too sexist for modern times, we nevertheless get a zesty look at Italy and an acting class from two at the top of their game.

Italians and their interesting culture that involves social programs, odd affairs, their elders and religion. These three stories get it all. Although there is not much to them, they are fun.

Wonderful italian melodrama anthology piece.

Ms Loren is stunning in this triple dip of sexy Italian comedy. She shows her acting chops as well as her timeless beauty with costar Marcello Mastroianni providing a superb romantic second fiddle. The two make a beautiful couple & Mastroianni has a terriffic comedic flair. The locations look like morethe real Italy. If your a Sophia Loren fan, you will like this movie.

Italy. Sofia Loren. 3 stories. Fun!
½ January 7, 2014
Not DeSica's best, but hard to dislike his consistently great use of Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren.

Character makes up for weak story lines. Showcase of Mastroianni's versatility.

Sophia Loren >>>>>>>>>>>>

Breaking down in three separate stories, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow is indeed a fine comedy. However, despite thought-provoking at times, especially the second story with Sophia Loren driving a Rolls-Royce, the whole film is just unattractive. If there were no strip dance from Sophia Loren and the funny Marcello Mastroianni, the film would have been purely unremarkable.

Not at the same level as Bicycle Thieves or Umberto D., but it's another masterpiece all the same.

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.
