Synopsis

While on a tour in Paris the leading lady of a company of Italian actors performing Pirandello cannot resist looking up an old flame, stirring up various male passions in the process; meanwhile her partner is guided in his endless search for a lost Goldoni by the attractive blonde daughter of the custodian of a vital library.

The Review

A sophisticated theatrical comedy typical of the director's exhaustive approach to his material. Rewarding while it's on but of little lasting impression.
