Seven episodes putting seven aspects of a woman's personality on display. If watching Shirley MacLaine in all seven roles getting it on (or not) with seven different men sounds like your cup of tea, look no further. However Woman Times Seven is uneven and even the direction by De Sica, who occasionally was too prolific for his own good, doesn't add sufficient wit and charm to make this of more than academic interest to those not doting on MacLaine. After this effort she probably never had to go an audition again, having made the perfect showreel displaying all her possible moods from A to G.

Comments:

Despite it's reasonable price this is a 'no sale'. A terribly ineffectual film with a lifeless, interlaced transfer. This single-layered, bare-bones DVD from LionsGate has prominent noise and supports De Sica's comedy quite poorly. It is anamorphic (assumingly correct 1.66:1 ratio) but colors are dull and detail is non-existent. The 2 channel audio is acceptable and there are optional English or French subtitles. 

There are no extras save a trailer promoting LionsGate's The Red Violin DVD package - part of their Meridian Collection. I did not enjoy my viewing and any hopes that some of De Sica's brilliance would filter through the hammy performances will be left with disappointment. For under $10 (it's actually listed at $12), or even under $5, I don't want this DVD in my collection as I have no desire to ever see it again.
