Sight and Sound
Rating: 5/5 -- An Oscar-winning trio of comic tales - from a trio of legends.
Las Vegas Review-Journal
De Sica may seduce us with his breezy comedy but concealed beneath is his usual preoccupation with class, making the laughs in Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow delightfully brittle. Full Review
Not at the same level as Bicycle Thieves or Umberto D., but it's another masterpiece all the same, bringing a much-needed humor, warmth, and sexuality to the director's work. Full Review
Rating: C+ -- Another over hyped Sophia Loren film that fizzles more than it sizzles. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: B+ -- In a change of pace, De Sica directed this three-act comedy, which won the Best Foreign Language Oscar, featuring charming performances from Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni at their prime. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/4 -- De Sica demonstrates his considerable versatility by showing that he is just as adept at light comedy as he is at tragic social commentary. Full Review
From the Front Row
YESTERDAY, TODAY, and TOMORROW from director Vittorio De Sica features the most popular male and female leads of the Italian 20th century cinema, Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni. Directed by Vittorio De Sica (THE BICYCLE THIEF, THE GARDEN OF THE FINZI-CONTINIS), and costumed by Christian Dior, the film exploits the enormous sex appeal of both stars in three short tales set against three historic Italian cities. The first, Adelina of Naples, details the comic trials of a woman caught selling contraband cigarettes to support herself and her unemployed husband (Mastroianni). When her husband discovers that under Italian law a woman cannot be imprisoned until six months after her pregnancy ends, Loren and Mastroianni seize the moment to produce one baby after another. Loren plays Anna of Milan in the second tale, an upper class wife who becomes infuriated when her young lover, Mastroianni, destroys her precious convertible. The film saves the best for last with Loren serving up a heart stopping striptease as a Rome prostitute intent on dazzling a young man headed for the priesthood. When Loren determines to set the young man back on the road to God, she nearly drives her best client (Mastroianni) insane with desire. A wealthy socialite, a black marketeer and a beautiful prostitute (all played by Sophia Loren) use sex in various ways to get what they want.
- This film won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film, marking the second time a De Sica film had received this award.
- The first tale in the film was based on the life or a real woman, Concetta "Black Market Connie" Musscardo.
