Divorce, Italian Style (1962)
Starring: Marcello Mastroianni, Daniela Rocca, Stefania Sandrelli, Leopoldo Trieste
Director: Pietro Germi
Category: Foreign, Comedy
Studio: Hen's Tooth
104 mins



Director Pietro Germi's delightful marital farce was the first and best in a wave of Italian sex comedies of the sixties.This Academy Award winner takes a hilarious look at love, sex and marriage.

Marcello Mastroianni stars as a self-centered Sicilian nobleman facing a mid-life crisis.He's lost all romantic interest in his wife and becomes obsessed instead with marrying his teenage cousin.In 1960s Italy, there is no divorce.So he devises an elaborate scheme for another man to seduce his wife.This would, under Italian law, allow him to kill her with impunity in defense of his honor.The choicest scenes are the fantasy murders he imagines and the extraordinary lengths he's willing to go in pursuit of his goal.
