What's the film about?
An omnibus film, where the common theme is the conflict between modern lifestyle and traditional values. The film is made up of eight segments, each one with a different mood, so you have both Nouvelle Vague and comedy Italia style, an intimate love story and the chronicle of a massacre, a Fellini-esque sketch and even a science-fiction finale. Hit-and-miss but interesting.

...if you are looking for oddities from the golden era of Italian cinema.
