A four episode anthology exploring morality and love. Working-class lovers, Renzo and Luciana in a secret marriage (Solinas, Gilioli), a billboard of a blonde woman provocatively selling milk (Ekberg, De Filippo), the wife of a lascivious count struggles with her own independnce (Schneider, Milian), and a buxom carnival operator in need of cash (Loren, Giuliani). Solid composition and editing sustain an encompassing, and hilarious, portrayal of female mystique.
