Synopsis by Nicole Gagne
Love indeed has surprises in this romantic comedy from writer/director Luigi Comencini. The lively Didì (Dorian Gray) is engaged to Ferdinando (Walter Chiari), a mousy teacher; her romantic pal Marianna (Sylva Koscina) is engaged to the womanizing Battista (Franco Fabrizi). The women decide that the best thing to do is to trade fiancés. Didì has little trouble raising Battista's interests, but Ferdinando frets over his responsibilities both to Didì and to his pal Battista. Ultimately, Marianna has second thoughts and marries Battista after all. Ferdinando, however, takes off with the servant girl Mariarosa (Anna Maria Ferrero), leaving Didì to look for someone new.
