Toto' a colori was the first Italian movie to be shot with a colour film, but the sensitivity was very low (6 asa!) so the actors had to act under a very strong lighting and high temperature.

possibly the worst Toto' movie I have ever seen
17 August 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I am a big fan of Toto' and I have seen almost all of his movies.

I accept the fact that most of his movies have a weak plot, because the sheer presence of Toto' with his brilliant acting makes them worth to be viewed.

Well, Toto Tarzan is probably the only movie where not only the plot is inconsistent and silly, but also Toto acting is really pathetic.

The first half of the movie is about Toto-Tarzan landing in the middle of the "civilized" world from the forest. A few ridiculous gags in the company of a poorly disguised monkey.

The second half sees Toto in the army, in a series of highly unrealistic adventures.

I can't remember a single episode worth to be watched.
