I hardly know Wertmuller cinema, but what I saw gives me the idea of someone on the edge of accomplishment but not getting there. There is an idea and desire to make "Italian cinema", especially comedy with drama and eroticism, but it turns out that her gesture is only a semblance, friendly and sometimes amusing, but just and only that. The actors in their cartoonish excess are essential parts of so much stereotype.
