L'amore difficile (internationally released as Of Wayward Love and as Sex Can Be Difficult) is a 1962 Italian comedy anthology film. The film represents the directorial debut of the four authors, that however were all experienced in other areas of the cinematographic industry (Manfredi and Bonucci as actors, Lucignani and Sollima as writers).[1] The four episodes are based on short stories of well-known Italian novelists ( Mario Soldati, Alberto Moravia, Italo Calvino and Ercole Patti) and share the themes of love and betrayal.[2]

The film was co-produced with West Germany where it was released with the title Schwierige Liebe.
