Crew
Directed by Luchino Visconti, Mario Monicelli, Federico Fellini and Vittorio De Sica


Four legendary filmmakers direct some of Europe's biggest stars in BOCCACCIO '70, a landmark anthology film. Mario Monicelli (Big Deal on Madonna Street), Federico Fellini (8½), Luchino Visconti (The Leopard) and Vittorio De Sica (Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow) direct Sophia Loren, Anita Ekberg, Romy Schneider and more through four stories of unashamed eros. Modeled on Boccaccio's Decameron, they are comic moral tales about the hypocrisies surrounding sex in 1960s Italy.

Monicelli's "Renzo e Luciana" (cut out of the original American release) is a frothy tale of young love and office politics in the big city. Fellini's notorious "Le tentazioni del dottor Antonio" features Ekberg as a busty model in a milk advertisement whose image begins to haunt an aging prude. Visconti's "Il Lavoro" stars Romy Schneider as a trophy wife enduring her husband's very public affairs, and De Sica's "La Riffa" raffles off a night with Sophia Loren to a lucky ticket holder during a small town fair.

Bursting with passion and sly satire, Boccaccio '70 is a glittering showcase for some of the greatest talents in movie history.

"It has glamour, sophistication, color, wit and sensuality!" - The New York Times
