Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow and, no doubt, for years to come, this film will give you enormous pleasure. How could it fail? The Loren, Mastroianni, De Sica combination is fail-proof. La Loren, as always, lights up the screen with her undeniable beauty; brilliant, open hearted, gutsy and generous performance; and her versatility. Mastroianni is certainly her equal in all respects. Two actors who could steal any scene, Loren and Mastroianni play so beautifully and generously in all of their films together, comedy or drama, from "A Special Day" to "Marriage Italian Style" they deserve to be called the greatest screen couple of all time. It must have been a joy for the Master, De Sica, to direct them.
I happened to watch this DVD the night after watching "Bicycle Thieves" so was once again struck by the awesome intelligence, compassion, and versatility of De Sica. A true Master of the cinema.
Finally, this high-definition restoration of the film truly adds to the enjoyment of watching it.
