Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow

Director Vittorio De Sica, in his late crowd-pleasing comic mode (1963), joins forces with his longtime screenwriter, Cesare Zavattini, to create three broad, brassy sketches with Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni (the third was reprised in Robert Altman’s Ready to Wear). Not bad for what it is, though a long, long way from Shoeshine or even The Gold of Naples. 119 min. (JR)
