This little gem of a film is about a Roman newspaper vendor (Alberto Sordi) who enters the world of the rich for a brief time only to be disappointed that he is a fish out of water. Vittorio De Sica plays his penniless mentor. This is a remake of the 1937 "Il signor Max" in which Sordi's role was played by then matinee idol De Sica. Director Giorgio Bianchi has given us a fine sophisticated little comedy which almost lives up to the original.
