Questa volta parliamo di uomini (This Time Let's Talk about Men[1] or Let's Talk About Men[2]) is a 1965 Italian tragicomedy film directed by Lina Wertmüller and starring Nino Manfredi.[3] The film was shot in black and white and in 35mm and lasted 91 minutes.[4]



The film has been described as a "blantantly commercial venture in four episodes".[5] An "episodic comedy",[6] it is described as a "caustic satire of Italian masculinity" and Wertmüller's only truly Feminist film.[1][6] It has been described as a "populist farce based on a showy yet tame feminism."[7]
