Dark Eyes (1987)

In this superb film which blends several stories of Anton Chekov, namely "Lady with a Dog", in which Marcello Mastroianni relates his seriocomic woes of wooing the opposite sex. While a superb piece of storytelling in its own right, it is also a great showcase for Marcello, as he uses his aging gigolo's charm as a way to squeeze out of every mess his libido gets him in. If you don't like foreign films, it's because you haven't seen the right ones.
