Description
 
This is a region-free DVD+R without case or artwork.

In Italian with English subtitles. Also known as Poor but Beautiful and Girl in a Bikini.

Directed by Dino Risi. Marisa Allasio plays a teen-aged heart-breaker who is actively wooed by two moonstruck young Italian swains. After 90 minutes or so of playing one boy against the other, she finally chooses someone. The film's brightest moment is a buffoonish bit by popular Italian comedian Memmo Carotenuto. Made at a time when the Italian film industry was tightening its belt, Poveri ma Belli was swiftly assembled by Dino Risi on a beggarly budget of around $100,000 -- a fact which gives its title something of a double meaning.
