Reason of Choice

Blasetti's cheerful vision has a tone that is fundamentally and intentionally grandiloquent.
"The most persuasive, it is the sharpest with its spicy wit and humor, not only wonderful for the low cut outfits worn by Gina Lollobrigida, which get lower and lower as the film proceeds, and the thoroughly enjoyable performance by Vittorio De Sica, but especially for the freshness and vivaciousness of the storytelling". (Giovanni Calendoli, "Il lavoro illustrato", 1952)
