"This is a weird little, low-budget, foreign film that oddly enough is the best movie I've ever seen Goldie Hawn in. My wife is a big fan of Goldie, so--by osmosis--I've ended up seeing her in all her movies, and I swear, this one is funniest, in a low key sort of way. It's about this world-weary, chain smoker, bag-eyed, married guy, who drives to his dad's house (the dad is dying) and takes Goldie along--he finds her at his mistress's house. The movie has got this nice lightness/freshness/breeziness to it that most movies no longer have, and you get odd glimpses of Italy as it was 30 years ago. The DVD unfortunately isn't wide screen, the print is less than spectacular, the soundtrack sounds like it has been badly dubbed, there is no scatalogical humor, there are no wonderful special features, but oddly enough you will feel utterly wonderfully, satisfied, and amused, when you finish with this charming little DVD."
