Guards and Thiefs is probably the best Italian comedy of ever, played by two giants like Totò and Fabrizi. The plot is very simple, bitter and sweet. You must see that movie with the mind of the '50 in Italy, the poor Italy after the war. A small thief is captured by a police man. During the travel to the police station the thief escapes, putting the guard in trouble. He tried to capture him once again using the friendship between his daughter and thief's son. At the end the two families, without knowing anything about the real reason of that interest in the two fathers, become very close. The two families are well described and you pass continually from laughing to tears, especially at the end, when, with tears at his eyes, the policeman takes once again the thief to the prison. Have a good vision and enjoy it.
