Sandro is a well-known journalist and he is conducting a survey on human selfishness. Every man and every woman he meets turns into a theme for his inquiry. Even his own wife, Titta. But little by little Sandro identifies himself with the people he meets and the accusation against mankind changes into a confession to himself. And, after the death of his true friend Peppino Marazzi and a conversation with Silvia, Sandro begins to consider again his own life.Written by

I watched this film about 5 years ago, and I must say it's one of the bests I've seen. The subtle humour is perfectly married with the irony and another emotional moments. This film and 'Loves of a Blonde' (Milos Forman) have that subtlety you hardly see anymore. Mastroiani's performance as Pepino is memorable. His performances in different films as a director, gigoló and also a shy - timid man (for example) make him one of the most outstanding actors ever.
"Io Io Io e gli altri", starts laughing about itself, starts critizicing society, its vices, and the narrator commits one of those in the middle of his monologue. It sets up a tongue in cheek film which develops in an intelligent way.
