Tony Mastroianni Cleveland Press The picture is a poorly blended mixture of farce, satire, and protest. It is staunchly anti-clerical while it focuses on but only weakly tackles several social problems. Jan 22, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews A dull and tasteless personal sex comedy. Rated: C Nov 9, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member good com-dram starring the italian tracy/hepburn loren & mastroianni Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A woman wih problems falls in love with a priest running a local helpline; the two's infatuation develops into a love story. Comedy of dubious taste that takes a shop too cheap at the Catholic Church. It's almost a complete waste of the chemistry between Loren and Mastroianni, though it is hard to understand why they should have wasted their talent on such a weak movie at that point of their career. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A man ought to choose between Duty & Love , already chose one at the end. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
