This sometime comedy is a trilogy of stories, set in Naples, Milan and Rome. Sophia Loren plays three different women, including Adelina, a shrewd Neopolitan who sells black-market cigarettes.

So she gets pregnant year after year and seems more radiant than ever, while her husband Carmine is virtually exhausted.
