The action takes place in a small Sicilian town. Vincenzo Macaluso sends his gang to kidnap a young woman he wants to bed and make his. Unfortunately, they take Asunta, and not her cousin. Vincenzo, who cannot resist a beautiful woman, has his way with Asunta, against her will. In the morning, she tells Vincenzo he must marry her to save her from the town's ridicule. Unfortunately, he has other plans, and flees to Scotland...

Mario Monicelli, a genius in his own right, might have been a bit out of his league working in England. The screenplay is not exactly what one might have expected from Ronald Harwood, the adapter, who up to that point had only worked on television. The screenplay by Luigi Magni and Rodolfo Sonego has some good moments, especially the scenes in Sicily in the opening sequence and in the flashbacks to the sort of "Greek Chorus" composed of the townspeople haunting Asunta's resolve to kill Vincenzo.

Monica Vitti, one of the leading actresses of the Italian cinema showed she had a knack for comedy. She is properly exaggerated as Asunta reacts to the English world around her. The great Carlo Giuffre appears as Vincenzo, a lady killer who finds his way into the hearts of English women. Stanley Baker shows toward the last part of the film.
