Synopsis / Plot
The film is about an old fashioned Italian with moral values of the 1930/40's ,who has to find a wife in the modern, woman's liberated society of Australia of the 1960/70's. His wife hunting task is made even more arduous by his stringent moral requirements in his lonely hearts column newspaper announcement placed in his native Italy. Number one, requirement, that she is a virgin. After a long letter correspondence with the prospective bride, he finds at the airport's arrival hall a stunningly beautiful woman (Claudia Cardinale) to meet him, for whom he falls in love with immediately. As his friend points out "there is something strange about such beautiful woman needing to leave Italy, and marry a poor Italian immigrant on the other side of the globe, she's evidently running away from something." His intuition was spot on, she was an prostitute escaping from her pimp.
