Storyline

A combination of a satire on war and a comedy with war as the background. It tells of the ordinary people living on a Naples sidestreet, from 1940 to 1950 under the dominance of the Fascists, the Nazis and then the Allies occupation forces. Primary among the citizens is Gennaro Iovine (Eduard De Filippo)who has a penchant for innocently getting into trouble, and his friend Pasquale (Toto.) The latter is a rail-sweeper who becomes a professional stand-in...a corpse used to conceal contraband...serving jail time for those who don't care to spend the time to do the time...a substitute at a political rally when violence threatens the scheduled speaker.

Magnificent!
23 November 1999 | by (Scottsdale, AZ USA) – See all my reviews

This is the greatest play by the Great Italian playwright, director and author Edoardo de Filippo. It combines drama, humour, the description of post-war Naples and the dynamics of a family in a unique and masterful way. To see Edoardo in person on stage was always a major treat. This movie is a fitting tribute to one of Italy's national treasures.
