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.

One of Vittorio de Sica's strangest films, this one stars two of the most famous Italians of all time: Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni. The movie is set in three places, with the two stars playing three different roles. In the first setting, both characters are involved in a black market to sell cigarettes, of which Loren gets arrest for her wrongdoings and is sent to jail, causing uproar as a result. The second setting involves the couple as wealthy individuals of society, who really don't seem to care for one another or anybody else for that matter. The third follows Mastroianni having an affair with a prostitute (of course, Loren). Amusing, odd Italian movie from the master maybe just minor one for him, but is fun to watch, especially considering the stars.

This movie showcases Marcello Mastroianni, Sophia Loren and Rome at their nadir in crisp, Italian color. Each plays three roles in three short stories. The first has the two actors playing a poor couple in which the wife is threatened with prison for illegally selling cigarettes. Rome provides them with few opportunities to get by and eventually sends Sophia to prison when the authorities show up and for once she is not pregnant. In the second, Loren plays the bored wife of a rich businessman who flirts with Mastroianni until he crashes her car. Here the colorful, busy streets of Rome are briefly glimpsed before the couple sets out for the countryside. In the third, Loren is a courtesan who understandably attracts both Mastroianni and a seminary student with an adjoining roof. The Rome of this tale is one of private apartment rooftop balconies overlooking the more public squares in which the furtive lusts and desires of humanity are grappled with outside of the agora. Parts one and especially three have an exuberant good humour while part two achieves a kind of icy sophistication I associate with many of the best post-war Italian films like La Dolce Vita, though it doesn‚(TM)t quite reach the depth of the ideas of that great film. While the comedy could have been more amusing it‚(TM)s a pleasure to watch these three actors in the prime of their careers.

"Ieri, Oggi, Domani" is an excellent Italian language film. But it's not just a regular film-- it's an anthology based one. Those kinds of movies hardly ever work, but unlike most, this one seems to pull it off almost perfectly. The movie has three vignettes, all of which star Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni (one of the best screen couple's of all time), and each have to do with different relationships in Italy. The first, "Adelina of Naples" takes place in poor Naples in 1953, in which married couple Adelina (Loren) and Carmine (Mastroianni) are struggling-- Carmine is jobless, and Adelina sells black market cigarettes for a job. In order to avoid jail time, she keeps pumping out babies-- to the extreme. The second, the weakest of the bunch, "Anna of Milan" is about the extremely wealthy wife/socialite Anna's (Loren) relationship with her lover Renzo (Mastroianni). Renzo is forced to reevaluate their relationship when in a car wreck, she's more worried about the car than him or the kid she almost hit. The last, the funniest, and my personal favorite, "Mara of Rome". Mara (Loren) is a high-class prostitute working in her apartment, and is now working with neurotic (and rich) client Augusto (Mastroianni). When a priest falls for Mara, Mara and his nutty grandma ensue in a battle of wills, which kills Augusto-- he wants sex. "Iegi, Oggi, Domani" is a stylish, well-written, and wonderfully acted sex comedy that should be better recognized as one of the famous trios best movies. De Sica's directing is superb, and this has got to be in the top five best performances of both the voluptuous Loren and the mega talented Mastroianni. 4.5 stars. Highly recommended.

2.5: The three separate stories was a complete surprise to me, but not a bad one. An entire film devoted to the first story would be a little much. I'll never completely be able to see what everyone sees in Sophia Loren. I guess she's not quite my style. The second story here is pretty much a throwaway. The first seems to be a precursor of something like Cheaper by the Dozen (in other words it's ridiculous), while the third is rather interesting if unfinished.

The stories get less successful as they proceed, but Loren remains ravishing throughout.

Enjoyable 60s Italian comedy built around the star presence of Sophia Loren and Marcello Matroianni, both in top form as usual. It's often more mildly amusing than really funny, with the first segment going a bit too far over the top, though the second and third are nice subtle satires. Not quite memorable enough to be a classic, but an entertaining couple of hours with two great stars.

Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni are indeed the perfect pair of actors from the 60s. No wonder they did so many films together. This trio of different stories shows off this dinamic italian duo. Bravo!!

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.

Episodic film chronicling the various ways in which women use sex to their advantage. The film is helmed by Italian Neorealist maestro Vittorio de Sica, but this film is certainly a far cry from the Neorealist movement. The beautiful Sophia Loren plays three different women in three separate stories. The male who is tormented by her in each is the great Marcello Mastroianni. The first segment about a woman avoiding prison because she is pregnant is the least interesting and slowest (also the longest) but the following parts are outstanding - particularly the second installment where Loren plays a cheating rich wife who just seems to hit every car she comes across while driving. The striptease in the final section is justly famous. Of course, the film would have been far more daring in its day, it is still wonderfully crafted with Italy's greatest moviestars. Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Language Film in 1964.

You can never turn down Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren, though it's not the best movie I've seen from either of them, it's a nice light, comedic affair compared to Vittorio De Sica's other films, which are extremely depressing to say the least. The first and third story are pretty funny throughout, however the second is way too short and just isn't that great.

Peut etre faut il conciderer un a un chaque histoire, au nombre de 3, que regroupe succesivement ce film. Un beau regard diversifi√ (C) sur l'Italie. A la fois drole, politique, sexy et parfois ennuyeux.
½ December 12, 2010
De Sica may seduce us with his breezy comedy but concealed beneath is a preoccupation with class, gender, and sex making the laughs in Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow delightfully brittle.

An anthology comedy for a change, all stories starring two fantastic actors: Mastroianni and Loren. The stories are hilarious, and any one of them would make a great full length movie. I really enjoyed this movie.

Hold my shorts. A movie about sex featuring a young Sophia Loren. Who cares if it sucks. It's gold just because Loren was the hottest thing to ever hit the screen.
