Emerenziano (Ugo Tognazzi) is the middle aged tax inspector looking for a rich woman to keep from working and provide him with food and sex. He travels to northern Italy where he is taken in by three maiden sisters of less than average beauty. He marries one sister and takes the other two as mistresses. The virginal sisters are slowly transformed in to man hungry mavens, each possessing their own individual sexual talents. Emerenziano is felled by a stroke when he tries to get the maid to play erotic games. He becomes a helpless prisoner subjected to the whims of the love starved females in this erotic dark comedy.
Alberto Lattuada's 1970 film Come Have Coffee with Us (Venga a Prendere il Caffè... da Noi) has many of the trappings of a silly, vulgar, throwaway sex comedy, but it has something a bit more sinister on its mind than just that... an inarguable success... the experience is worthwhile as a provocation, reminder, and example of undeniably effective aesthetic strategies... Recommended. --DVDTalk.com
Alberto Lattuada's 1970 Italian film, Come Have Coffee with Us, is a keen look at the defining pitfalls of middle-aged passion... Most comedies are not known for their visual sophistication but Lattuada's direction is particularly strong... The performances of all the leads are what makes this film memorable and a delight to watch. --Film Monthly
All in all, this is a smarter and more poignant sex comedy than you might expect it to be and an interesting statement on the social excess of Italys upper class. An interesting and enjoyable look at how you can sometimes have too much fun, Come Have Coffee With Us is well made, well-acted, and represented very nicely by Raros DVD release. --Rock! Shock! Pop!

The film is directed towards a mature audience with a spunk for finer things...or those who seek lavish life style.
The main character in this movie reminded me a little of Bertrand Morane from THE MAN WHO LOVED WOMEN (1977).
A middle age guy who has a thing for women, while at the same time is seeking to settle down with single woman who is rich enough to make his life easier. I do not know if that is an oxymoron, but it sure sound like the protagonist has a life-dilemma.
In addition, COME HAVE COFFEE WITH US, has some great sequences capturing bourgeois life in modern day Italy, where
eating together at the table seems to be the essence of the ordinary day.
To summarize the movie for an ordinary Joe: lots of conversations while eating food, lots of 'censored' sex scenes, and ending that will leave you either laughing or thinking.
It is a delightful story, low-keyed. The town is set in northern Italy, which is beautiful and a nice change from the often seen arid Italian scenery of the southern peninsula.
This is one of my all time favorite Italian comedies. I have been waiting for years to see it come out in DVD. It has, and I own it!
Ugo Tognazzi is at his best in this film. Better than his role in La Cage au Foilles.
Get it--you won't be disappointed!
