I'm surprised at the negative reviews of this movie. Some people have no aesthetic taste at all. The beautiful Italian countryside, gorgeous music, breathtaking cinematography, a portrait of life in Italy before the ravages of globalisation reduced everywhere to drab capitalist uniformity, and a philosophical storyline which ponders how man lost Eden... An absolutely unique film that could not have been made at any other time than the precise time it was produced. A total classic which repays multiple viewings.

Not a very well written or directed film, but certainly a curiosity. The story behind the actors, and film-makers is actually far more interesting than the film itself!

There is an attempt at a story here, I just wish I knew what it was! It was absolutely panned by critics at the time - but maybe nostalgia is a saving grace today. It is worth viewing, but if you are are fan of intricate and well crafted stories, this will disappoint severely. If you only want to enjoy youthful exuberance and naked beach boys - you'll love it.
