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.

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).

Totò at the best (as usual)
26 August 2002 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Nothing to add: This film is one of the masterpiece of Totò, better: one of the masterpiece of Italian comic cinema. Antonio de Curtis and Peppino's dialogues are the top of entertainment: the writing of the letter to Marisa is the most famous sketch of Italian cinema. The plot is simple, but no one care. This movie will make you laugh for two hours but also reflect about social problems of Italy after the World War II especially what concern the restrict mentality of the country people.
