Comedy about self-made woman (Monica Vitti) in Paris contemplating the idea of suicide at first, then murder.
The film is a delightful comedy giving Monica Vitti the chance to do what she does best. She has a twinkle in her eye as she handles men. She isn’t lost for long when things don’t work out.
They don’t make stars like her anymore. She plays a confident sexy woman on her own in Paris while keeping her chic Dior clothes on. She is not a bimbo or a teenager but a free spirited woman enjoying herself. Look at her dance on the nightclub. She is gorgeous!
The film is typical of European movies of the time. Not much happening but plenty of style and with all the games grown up men and women played. It’s a kind of a sophisticated comedy they don’t make any longer.
