Tre Notti d'amore (1964): La Moglie Bambina

The third segment of "Tre Notti d'amore" is about a dance-loving eighteen year-old who's married to a constantly resistant, tired, middle-aged architect with extreme neurotic fits. Convinced the root of her husband's problems stem from the fact that he has no idea how to live with a teenage wife, she begins to suspect that the only way to know for sure if he loves her or not is to concoct various scenarios/traps that will absolutely land him in bed with another woman unless he refuses. But on some big level the plot here just doesn't matter because the segment (bookended by extended dance sequences) is really about watching Catherine Spaak, who couldn't look more gorgeous.
