Come Have Coffee with Us

Venga a prendere il caffè... da noi (The Man Who Came for Coffee)

Directed by Alberto Lattuada
Italy, 1970
  • Italian
  • English


A middle-aged tax inspector is in search of a wealthy wife, but finds that his three prospects are neither young or beautiful. Deciding to marry one of them and taking the other two as mistresses, he finds that each possess their own individual sexual talent.

Our take

In this gem of Italian comedy from Alberto Lattuada (The Overcoat, Mafioso), the great Ugo Tognazzi (La cage aux folles) stars in a role that’s only one step down in dark comedy from Monsieur Verdoux. A wicked riff on Italian sex comedies of the 60s, exchanging bombshells for spinsters.
