In Rome, Mara, a call-girl, turns the head of a young seminarian...
A year before Italian Wedding , Vittorio De Sica made a model of the sketch film, the predominant format of Italian comedy of the 1960s. Awarded the Oscar ® for best foreign film, Yesterday, today and tomorrow navigates subtly between humor, drama and derision to better understand the Italian society of his time. By bringing them together for the first time in leading roles, Vittorio De Sica consecrates the legendary couple Marcello Mastroianni – Sophia Loren.
