A Fine Romance Details


Devastated by the news of his wife's affair with the suave Dr. Piquet (Jean-Michel Cannone), Cesario Garibaldi (Marcello Mastroianni) hatches a plan with Dr. Piquet's wife, Pamela (Julie Andrews). Neither of them realized, however, that curtailing the extramarital bliss of their respective spouses would lead to a tricky liason of their own. Based on François Billetdoux's play Tchin-Tchin, this sex farce is set in Paris and directed by Gene Saks. This is not the first time Saks has tried his hand at filming plays; the director is also responsible for the film versions of Biloxi Blues, The Brighton Beach Memoirs, and Bye Bye Birdie. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
