A Place for Lovers (Italian: Amanti) is a 1968 romantic film directed by Vittorio De Sica and based on the play Gli Amanti by Brunello Rondi and Renaldo Cabieri. It stars Faye Dunaway as a terminally ill American fashion designer in Venice, Italy who has a whirlwind affair with a race car driver (played by Marcello Mastroianni).
The film was released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and opened to negative reviews: Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times called it the "most godawful piece of pseudo-romantic slop I've ever seen!" and Charles Champlin of the Los Angeles Times referred to it as "the worst movie I have seen all year and possibly since 1926." Years later, A Place for Lovers was included as one of the choices in the book The Fifty Worst Films of All Time.
To date, the film has not been commercially released on DVD.
