Overview

Each of the episodes in the three-part Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (Ieri, Oggi E Domani) stars Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni. In "Adelina-Naples," Loren and Mastroianni are married, and Loren is in trouble with the law. Each time the authorities close in, Loren eludes capture by revealing a swollen belly; back in 1964, Italian law forbade the arrest of a pregnant woman until six months after the child's birth. In "Anna," Loren is married to a wealthy industrialist and has an affair with Mastroianni. So obsessed is she with material possessions that she's willing to walk out on Mastroianni when he smashes her sports car. And in "Mara," high-priced prostitute Loren attracts the attention of a young seminary student, but refuses to seduce him -- then takes a vow of chastity, aggravating her regular customer (Mastroianni). While the first episode is the funniest, it was the last episode which received the most press-coverage, thanks to Loren's "striptease" scene, revealing La Loren in skimpy bra and panties (a bit parodied by the stars in Robert Altman's otherwise-dreadful Prêt-à-Porter). Though the title Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow has absolutely no relation to the film at hand, it is a far more appealing cognomen than the film's British release title, She Got What She Asked For.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
An unlikely winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, 1963's Ieri, Oggi, Domani (Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow) is a trifling but entertaining three-part fantasy from one of Italy's greatest neo-realist directors, Vittorio de Sica. Miles away from such social comment movies as Shoeshine and Bicycle Thieves, Ieri features two attractive, big-name stars (Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni) in its humorous examination of the power and politics of sexuality. The film is closest in tone to Pietro Germi's satiric social comedies of the same era, typified by Divorce - Italian Style. Well known as a sex symbol, Loren had become the first foreign-language performer to win the Academy Award for Best Actress in a more serious De Sica picture, 1960's Two Women. She reunited with De Sica and Mastroianni for the minor but more focused Marriage Italian Style later that year.
