Renato Castellani both directed and co-wrote the romantic comedy E' Primavera. The film was the second of Castellani's trilogy dealing with the less-than-smooth course of young love in postwar Italy (it was filmed just after Sotto il sole di Roma and just before Two Cents Worth of Hope). Leading man Mario Angelotti, loving not wisely but too well, quickly discovers that the penalty for bigamy is two wives. Between his tempestuous Sicilian bride, played by Elena Varzi and his sedate Milanese missus (Irene Gemma), the poor man barely has time to take a breath. Director Castellani does wonders with his largely non-professional cast, especially Angelotti, who is a "natural" for the screen. E' Primavera was released in England and the U.S. as It's Springtime and It's Forever Springtime.
