Virna Lisi, winner of 24 international film awards, stars as Arabella – a wily but good-hearted Italian temptress.
Riddled with lovable stereotypes, this European comedy romp follows an elderly Italian lady (Margaret Rutherford), who finds herself in seriously deep water when her unpaid tax bill rears its ugly head. She owes
money all the way from 1895 – but there’s simply no chance she can pay.
Luckily for her, she has a cunning granddaughter who is ready to help – Arabella. The young woman makes it her mission to save grandma from destitution – with more than a few mishaps along the way.
British comedian Terry-Thomas bounces between four roles in this riotous, star-studded frolic. Also features BAFTA and Golden Globe winner James Fox (A Passage to India) and Oscar nominee Giancarlo Giannini
