Scandal in Sorrento or Pane, amore e... (1955) is an Italian comedy film directed by Dino Risi. This is the third film of the trilogy, formed by Bread, Love and Dreams in 1953, Bread, Love and Jealousy in 1954. This film is the first and only one in the series directed by Dino Risi, and starring Sophia Loren rather than Gina Lollobrigida.
Two other innovations include the use of color rather than black and white, as well the location of Sorrento instead of the small village of the previous films of the series. At the 6th Berlin International Film Festival it won the Honorable Mention (Best Humorous Film) award.
Marshal Antonio Carotenuto arrives back in his home town of Sorrento to take care of the local traffic police. Donna Sofia, an attractive fishmonger, almost accepts marriage to Antonio almost as a joke to make Nicolino, a fisherman who she is genuinely in love with, jealous.
