Storyline

Antonio Scaparro è ossessionato dalle donne. Pensa che la vita degli uomini sia sempre rovinata da loro e specialmente dal matrimonio. Ha quindi inventato una sua filosofia: "la soffittazione", ovverosia il rifugiarsi in soffitta per fare tutte quelle cose che la moglie Giovanna non gli permette, come leggere un libro giallo in pace, buttare la cenere per terra, camminare senza le pattine ai piedi e così via. E da questa soffitta ci mostra tutti i modi in cui le donne rendono diffile la vita agli uomini. Ma sarà poi vero? Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

the best
20 November 2007 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

THE BEST of all Italian comic movies through all ages. Precursory of neorealism, of which Mario Monicelli is an exponent. Superb BW photography, extraordinary soundtrack, state-of-the art acting, and... Totò, a serious and sensitive human being behind his picturesque characters. A very faithful portrait of Italy and Italian people. I strongly recommend "I soliti ignoti", "Bocaccio 70", "L'armata Brancaleone", "Parenti, serpenti" as a next appreciation of Monicelli's great comic filmography. I also recommend "Proibito', "I compagni", "La grande guerra", more serious although always with a bit of sarcasm within.
