Two popular lead actors star in this conventional story of unrequited love, directed by Mauro Bolognini. Emilio (Anthony Franciosa) is caught in the midst of a heavy-duty mid-life crisis when he runs into sexy Angiolina (Claudia Cardinale), voluptuous and frivolous in equal measure. In spite of good advice from his friends and family, including his sister Amalia (Betsy Blair), Emilio pursues the gorgeous Angiolina with single-minded dedication. He is incredibly unaware that she is as unconcerned as he is committed, and by not reading the obvious warning signs he heads right toward a big fall.
