Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow


Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow, is the 1963 comedy anthology directed by Vittorio de Sica. There are three stories: the first is about a woman named Adelina, who gets repeatedly pregnant in order to avoid jail. The second is about a woman named Anna, who relates her existential anguish to her lover, Renzo, while driving. The last story is about Mara, a prostitute who clashes with her neighbor over her lifestyle but soon becomes allies in order to stop her neighbor’s grandson from falling in love with Mara.

This is a really entertaining movie with the best stories being the 1st and 3rd ones. The second one is okay, although it doesn’t get funny until the end. It does have some nice tracking shots from inside the car. The viewer does have to wonder how healthy it is for Adelina to have multiple pregnancies spaced so closely together. With the third story, it becomes sweet as the relationship between Mara and the grandmother turns from hatred into genuine understanding. Honolulu film fans should watch this movie.
