Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Marcello Mastrioanni and Marina Vlady star in Giorni D'Amore (Days of Love). Marcello and Marina would like to get married, but lack the necessary funds for the traditional "big" wedding. Thus they plan to escape to the countryside and "live in sin." Though their respective families are outwardly outraged, they secretly contrive to help the lovers escape the prying eyes of their neighbors -- then stage an informal wedding to "save face." The plot of Giorni D'Amore wasn't all that unusual to the citizens of Southern Italy, where this sort of clandestine pre-marital get-together -- and all the intrigue surrounding it -- had been a real-life custom for centuries.
