Matrimonio all'Italiana

Marriage Italian Style

(Italy/France, 1964, 101 minutes)

After WWII ends, a wealthy Neapolitan merchant takes on a big-hearted prostitute as his kept woman, without ever meaning to marry her — until she takes matters in her hands. Lively, if predictable, comedy-melodrama reuniting the stars and director of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, with a tour-de-force performance for its female lead.
