Totò at his best.
17 February 2006 | by (Vélez-Málaga, Spain) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie last week on TV, while being in Italy for a family matter. I enjoyed every single minute of that ancient but truly good and effective "Italian style" comedy. Totò steals every scene and some times he doesn't really need to do a thing to become funny. His face, expressions and speech can do most of the half of the movie. Of course the other actors also played correctly their parts and there was no real hole because of the script or the performances. I must admit that some comic situations can be a little forced and somehow previsible, but none of them were absolutely unnecessary. Totò also made very good movies along his career, but not all were as remarkable as this.

I said I was in Italy when I saw and that's not for free: if you can, try to see (and hear) Totò's movies in the original version, that's MUCH better.
