Description

Mastroianni + Loren x 3: the duo light up this breezy triptych of tales about love, sex, and class. In the first, Mastroianni is the harried husband of a sexually voracious Loren, who’s staying pregnant to stay out of prison; in the second, they’re a pair of sophisticates tooling through Milan in a Rolls-Royce; and in the third, he’s the gotta-have-it client whose trysts with her high-priced prostitute are constantly thwarted (Loren’s sultry striptease is justly famous, but Mastroianni’s wolf-howls of delight put the scene over the top). De Sica’s Oscar-winning charmer deftly combines naughty bedroom comedy with neorealist social commentary. (Film Society of Lincoln Center
