Marriage Italian-Style

Matrimonio all'italiana

Directed by Vittorio De Sica
Italy, France, 1964
Comedy, Romance


The wealthy Domenico has had a long love affair with Filumena, who he’s been happy to keep as a mistress but nothing more. The problem comes when she grows tired of being kept to the side and hatches a plan to become a bigger part of his life…

Our take

Two icons, one tumultuous love affair! This Oscar-nominated hit is at once a triumphant battle-of-the-sexes comedy and a clever satire of gender politics, with the radiant Sophia Loren as the long-suffering mistress of an incorrigible, childish, and impressively mustachioed Marcello Mastroianni.
