Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow - Ieri, Oggi, Domani (1963)

I have to level with you. I am besotted with Sophia Loren. She has to be one of the ultimate, if not the ultimate, goddesses of the screen.  Frankly, in my eyes she is perfection. And whenever I watch a film with Sophia Loren I always find myself thinking: 'God, she's at her most beautiful here'. But then I'll watch another film later and say: 'No, she's at her most beautiful here'.

Despite playing three very different characters in Vittorio de Sica’s 1963 comic anthology Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, you have to admit that Loren looks her tiger eyes temptress best in each role; there’s Adelina, with the utterly natural, sultry and sensual beauty of a working class Neapolitan street trader, and Anna, the chic and elegant, Doir-clad wife of a rich industrialist, and lastly there’s Mara, a high-class Roman call girl whose sun kissed beauty ensures  she  easily captures the attention and hearts of all men, including her young neighbour who is training to be a priest! 


Be advised, if your watching this on your plasma screen…it may melt!
