comedy at his best

This is definitely one of the best comedy ever made anywhere...In a Technical school girl students learn to write commercial letters to a Mr Doe in Germany...one day one of these letters is posted by mistake..the problem is that this Mr Doe really exists...The exquisite vittorio de Sica was a great performer before reaching stardom in 1946 with "the bicycle theft"...The movie is always charming ,never vulgar nor stupid and you really get off the movie theatre happy with yourself and life in general..Mussolini censors used Cinema to divert people in those black days...its is not the only movie of its kind but it is the best by miles..After 1960 Italian Directors like Fellini or Scola reacted strongly against this type of comedies..Now they dont seem to know how to make them anymore.
