Synopsis

Emerenziano (Ugo Tognazzi), who is best known in the US for La Cage aux Folles,) is the middle-aged tax inspector who is in search of a wealthy wife. He travels to northern Italy where he meets three sisters, who, though wealthy, are not by any stretch of the imagination young or beautiful. He decides to marry one of them and then takes the other two as mistresses. The virginal sisters are slowly transformed into man hungry mavens, each possessing their own individual sexual talents. It all seems to be work out fine for him until he meets a young waitress who he entangles himself with and as a result becomes a helpless prisoner subjected to the whims of the love starved females in this erotic dark comedy.  

Reviews

Alberto Lattuada’s 1970 film Come Have Coffee with Us (Venga a Prendere il Caffè... da Noi) has many of the trappings of a silly, vulgar, throwaway sex comedy, but it has something a bit more sinister on its mind than just that. Its slight, harmless appearance hides some provocative moral and aesthetic questions that are ultimately imposed on the audience, who—if they came just for the cheap laughs and trashy titillation that the film actually does offer, at least initially—will find themselves made progressively uncomfortable, until by the end any complacent desire for low-grade, exploitative escapism has been cruelly frustrated and turned back on itself by the film’s relentless, increasingly garish excess, which reaches a near-punitive pitch by the time it arrives at its harshly satirical ending.
