35mm. The Italian cinema codes of the time, namely of comedy, still dominates which is Ferreri's second film, after a short, when he returned to Italy, after the frustrating experience with Spanish censorship. Even though already are revealed the thematic dominants of his future universe, are not the excessive baroque and metaphorical characteristics. Pitiless, demolishing family and Catholic religion.
It would be odd if Ferreri's farces didn't include 'catholicism' in their targets With this one he even got censor cuts in turn. It shows Regina (Vlady) not exactly as tiny as a bee ('ape'), and poor Alfonso (Tognazzi) who marries her a virgin but soon warns her: 'You're going to give me a heart attack!' (I could empathize and it's not even the first time I felt that way about an actress of the 60's, to be honest!)
