PLOT

Having reached the age of forty, director Guido Contini is facing a midlife crisis that is stifling his creativity and leading him into a variety of complicated romantic involvements. As he struggles to complete his latest film, he is forced to balance the numerous formative women in his life, including his wife, his mistress, his film star muse, his confidant and costume designer, an American fashion journalist, the whore from his youth, and his mother, played by Sophia Loren.

Adaptation of the book written by Arthur L. Kopit.
