Italian screen goddess Sophia Loren, one of the most beloved and recognisable figures in the international film world, has made over 100 films in her 50-year career. In Vittorio De Sica’s ode to complicated love, Marriage Italian Style, the formidable Loren plays Filumena, a penniless prostitute, who meets the handsome and successful Domenico (Loren’s frequent co-star Marcello Mastroianni) in Naples during World War II, sparking a passionate affair that spans two decades.
