This molto groovy, swinging ‘60s sex comedy stars Mastroianni as an inveterate seducer of women with a kinky hang-up: he can’t get it on without an element of danger. It’s a supremely silly premise that’s milked for all it’s worth, as the hapless Romeo finds himself driven to increasingly desperate extremes in order to get his jollies (situations involving, variously, a lion’s cage, a car chase with a cavalcade of Sicilians in hot pursuit, and a murder plot). In addition to a very game performance from Mastroianni, this Carlo Ponti production boasts drop-dead gorgeous Mediterranean locales, plenty of Euro-chic couture, and the de rigueur bachelor pad soundtrack. DCP from Istituto Luce Cinecittà.
