Actually directed by Salvatore Samperi, the international master of seductive and elegantly erotic cinema, and it can be clearly seen
A wonderful cast in a highly entertaining mix of seduction and comedy
It now appears clear that the real director of this film was in fact Salvatore Samperi, whose name was changed in the credits for contractual reasons to that of assistant director Alfredo Malfatti. In fact, it should always have been difficult to look beyond Samperi, also responsible for the wonderful Grazie zia and Malizia, in this masterful staging of a seductive and elegantly erotic film: characteristics that made Samperi’s name on the world stage. They are not the only merits of a film that, when the moment is right, expertly manages to combine comedy and the grotesque in a convincing Sicilian setting. Another strong point is undoubtedly the cast: Domenico Modugno has the perfect exuberance (he also composed the score), Pippo Franco all his characteristic joviality, while Eleonora Giorgi and Luciana Paluzzi (who had already played a Bond Girl in Thunderball) are more than a match for them in a game of intergenerational naughtiness.
Cobbler Salvatore has made his fortune in America and returns to Sicily. He is welcomed home with open arms by his brother Raffaele, who would like to get his hands on some of the money from across the ocean. That’s precisely why he decides not to intervene when Salvatore falls victim to the seductive powers of his daughter. But the uncle from America has no intention of being hoodwinked. In fact, he will also manage to take advantage of the graces of his attractive sister-in-law.
