The film, whose protagonists are Giancarlo Giannini and Laura Antonelli, is composed of a series of episodes that focus on the theme of "bizarre" sex. In the film, both Giannini and Antonelli are chameleonly engaged in the interpretation of the most disparate characters, from the newlyweds from Romagna to the Roman villagers, from the client - prostitute, to the sperm donor - Swedish nun.
In particular Giannini demonstrates, also thanks to his make-up, the particular grotesque side of his portraits (especially in the episode "It is never too late" where he even plays a gerontophiliac who undermines the octogenarian Paola Borboni). In the penultimate episode of the film, "A difficult love", curiously Laura Antonelli does not appear alongside Giannini, who is replaced by Alberto Lionello in the role of an Apulian transvestite transplanted to Milan.
