I can't say I was familiar with the 1970 film "Puccini: Madama Butterfly" (except for the title of the episode), but I was intrigued by the cover art and thought the title would be appropriate for the film. I can see why it was not popular at the time. I'm not sure what made me interested in the film and I can't explain why the film didn't do well, but I will say that the film was better than many of the films I've seen recently. I guess that it's one of those things that depends on how you look at it. To me, the film seems to be a satirical spoof of the Italian exploitation film genre, and that seems to me to be the only true reason for it's success. The acting in the film is not particularly good, but is a bit better than the acting in most Italian exploitation films. The film features the usual cast of Italian exploitation films, but it's not all that good. There is also a woman, who plays the role of the madame, who is not really bad. She's not the worst actress in the world, but I don't think she's the best. The characters are one-dimensional, but I guess that the director was just going for the spoof aspect of the film. The film is essentially about a man named Vittorio Cavani (played by actor, Fabio Aradini), who starts out as a trashy actor in Italian exploitation films, but soon becomes a movie star when he is hired by the local director to play in the latest movie, "Madama Butterfly". He wants to get out of his deal and escape from his contract, but his character isn't really motivated by money, but is more like a frustrated man that's just lost in the big city. There is also a man, who plays a good-natured role, but he has no real reason to do so. I'll admit, I thought the film would have been better if it was about someone else. But there is something about Vittorio Cavani that makes him a truly interesting character. He is likable, a bit eccentric, but also very funny. He is also very proud of his work, which is a bit odd considering he is basically the only character in the film. The film has a few flaws, but it's still one of the better Italian exploitation films. I think it is worth watching.
