"Divorce à l'italienne", de Pietro Germi, qui, à sa sortie en Protected content , a fait autant pour l'admission du divorce dans les mentalités que les discours politiques. Le film vient de ressortir à Paris.
Synopsis:
Ferdinando Cefalu, un noble sicilien, est amoureux de sa jeune cousine, Angela. Mais il est marié à Rosalia, une femme insupportable, et le divorce est illégal en Italie... Plein de ressources, Ferdinando concocte donc un " divorce à l'italienne " : pousser sa femme dans les bras d'un amant, surprendre l'infidèle en pleine action et commettre un crime passionnel qui n'entraîne qu'un minimum de peine de prison...

"Italian Divorce", by Pietro Germi, who, when it was released in Protected content , did as much for the admission of divorce in mentalities as political speeches. The film has just been released in Paris.
Synopsis:
Ferdinando Cefalu, a Sicilian nobleman, is in love with his young cousin, Angela. But he is married to Rosalia, an unbearable woman, and divorce is illegal in Italy... Full of resources, Ferdinando therefore concocts an "Italian-style divorce": pushing his wife into the arms of a lover, surprising the cheating in action and committing a crime of passion that carries minimal jail time...
