Storyline

Antonio, Peppino and Lucia are three brothers who live in the country near Naples. Lucia's son, Gianni, goes to Naples to study medicine, but there he knows a ballet dancer. They fall in love and, when she goes to Milan, Gianni follows her. Informed of this and afraid that their nephew will stop studying, the three Caponi brothers leave for Milan to persuade Gianni to come back and continue studying and abandon the "Malafemmina" (bad girl).

Trivia

According to Teddy Reno, the whole take of the letter (perhaps the most famous and referenced of the entire movie) was totally ad-libbed by both Totò and Peppino De Filippo. They were often unsatisfied with the script of the movie and frequently diverted from it: the letter take was one of the most successful. See more »

QFC - Totò, Peppino e la Malafemmina
25 August 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Funny. That's it. But if you say this to a Totò fan, they will kill you. Truth is that this film is as thin as thin as a wafer and the plot is just built around a famous song by Totò, 'Malafemmina'.

The film has its moments, but when Totò and Peppino leave the screen with their hilarious gags, the film is just not interesting. But what the hell, if you want fun with no strings attached, watch it. You should enjoy it.

WATCH FOR THE MOMENT - When Totò and Peppino write the letter to the 'Malafemmina', the nephew's girlfriend, telling her to leave him alone and let him study.
