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.

the genius of Eduardo
13 November 2004 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

"adda passa a nuttat"... how could I translate it? it is napoletan and it has a figurative mean. well you know when something very bad occurs, you don't see any way to escape from and you only consolation is to wait and go through it... that is it! the motto of this movie, the motto of an entire city and its multi face history seen by the picture of Jovine family. a family from the basso the filthy poorly and crowdy blocks in Naples whereby the sun never rise and the life is ten times more intense than normal. this movie is based one of the most brilliant De Filippo's play and celebrates, beside the genius of Eduardo, the extraordinary acting skills of Toto, the most underrated actor in the world (luckily not in Italy and especially in Naples). It is a must for every good movie collection.
