Storyline

After his battles with the communist mayor Peppone, Don Camillo is sent in exile by his bishop in a remote village. Peppone thought he got the village in his hands. But when the municipality decide to build a dike against the periodic floods, the proprietor of the land refuses. War between the village clans is about to begin. Maybe only the strong hand of the priest could persuade the landlord to change his mind. Will Peppone passed over his pride and send for his enemy?

Goofs

Pay close attention to Don Camillo's hand with the glass of castor oil in the "Castor Oil" scene. He pours what is clearly a viscous, oily liquid into the glass. Before drinking however, his hand drops out of view and when he puts the glass to his mouth the liquid is all of a sudden clear water. Apparently drinking the castor oil for real was one step too far. See more »

And life goes on for Don Camillo!
28 September 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Another little gem to watch! Don Camillo returns to its cherished parish after a forced "séjour" in the mountain. The mayor is happy to see him back, cause he sees in him a formidable adversary. Yes Peppone and Don Camillo are adversary, but deep down inside, they need each other. Another look at life in a little post-WWII Italian village, where catholism and communism fight each other.

Out of 100, I give it 82. That's good for *** out of ****.

Seen at home, in Toronto, on September 10th, 2002.
