To die laughing for. Rocca is a whining sex-crazed Sicilian wife who drives husband Mastroianni to consider divorce. Unfortunately for Rocca it is easier to murder in Italy than it is to divorce. And that's precisely what is done. The scheming Mastroianni then goes on to marry the
proverbial nymphet next door after his wife is out of the picture. A brilliant comic performance from Mastroianni which has been compared to the deadpan style of Keaton. It earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Actor, as well as Best Actor accolades from the Golden Globes and the British Film
Academy. Considered by some to be one of the greatest modern comedies.
