    Very good movie. Marcello Mastroianni is very good in this movie. And I always love to see a movie with the great Sophia Loren in it. 8 years 2 months ago

    I've been debating. I really admire this film, but just can't bring myself to mark it as 'favorite'. I thought it both provocative and moving with magnificent performances by both Loren and Mastroianni, but it's sad and disturbing at the same time in its recognition of historic fact. I'm glad I saw it and will recommend it to anyone interested in the portrayal of homosexuality in cinema, but I don't imagine I'd purchase a copy or go to the effort of tracking it down a second time. For me, it's like Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? - once is all I need. Experience had. Emotions felt. Performances recognized. 3 years 2 months ago
