Plot Summary
Director Pietro Germi's hilarious and pointed satire of Italian marital conventions is the prototypical Italian sex comedy.| Ferdinando Cefalu, a handsome Sicilian nobleman, longs to marry his beautiful nubile cousin Angela. There's only one problem: he's already married. Living in a society that frowns on divorce but forgives crimes of passion, Ferdinando devises a plan. He plots to prove his wife an adulteress, after which he can kill her and marry his cousin with impunity.
