Description:Cretinetti plays the parody of the dandy with a huge number of sweethearts (actually men in drag) chasing him. The film displays a unusual model of predatory and aggressive woman, who is not afraid to seek the immediate satisfaction of her impulses. The hustle of the events sweeps away all the typical and reassuring symbols of femininity. At the end the man does not stand the impact of this new situation and succumbs literally falling apart. The film fits into the established tradition of the “chase films”.
