About Bambole!

Loosely based on episodes from Giovanni Boccaccio's The Decameron, this Italian comedy is composed of four amusing vignettes. First, a husband (Nino Manfredi, Bread and Chocolate) is upset that his wife (Virna Lisi, Queen Margot) is always on the phone with her mother, so he searches for ways to entertain himself. Second, a student (Elke Sommer, A Shot in the Dark) bounds across Rome looking for the perfect father of her child. Third, a cheating woman (Monica Vitti, L'Avventura) tries to bump off her husband to be with her lover. Lastly, a woman (Gina Lollobrigida, Beat the Devil) tries to seduce the secretary (Jean Sorel, Belle de Jour) of a monsignor. Featuring beautiful women and lively comedy, BAMBOLE! is an entertaining romp. Newly remastered.
