Totò does Harpagon (sort of)
26 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

A bit Molière's L'Avare, a bit Plautus' Aulularia, this little comedy is notable because of the great comedic talent of Totò, one of the most charismatic and compulsively watchable Italian actors of the 20th century - even if he spent most of his careers with mediocre or "quite funny" movies. This is not one of his bests (see, for example, his wonderful part as the expert thief in I soliti Ignoti), but it's rather amusing nonetheless.

Greedy Baron Antonio Peletti (Totò) refuses to give to his town the heredity left by his father, a box full of precious jewels, which he keeps for himself. The major and the rest of the townspeople therefore organize a trick at his expense: they'll make him believe he is dead, and, in a fake "afterlife", they'll try to convince him to finally show them where the money is hidden to save his soul.

Although Totò's performance as the greedy baron is by far the best thing of the picture, I have to say that a young Carlo Croccolo is also rather funny as his miserable waiter.

Overall, not a great movie, and almost every scene without Totò (thankfully, very few) is totally worthless; besides, while the first part (before the fake death) is funny, and the second (during the baron's ordeal in the "afterlife") is also not bad, the last act the movie loses momentum and drags. However, Totò' s interpretation of the archetypal "greedy" character inevitably brings a smile to my face.
