Storyline

A Pianetta manca il medico condotto; questo fino all'arrivo del dottor Marchetti. In paese però il medico trova già installato Don Antonio, il guaritore locale che con un po' di psicologia, filtri magici e trucchi è tenuto in grande considerazione, specialmente da Mafalda che attende il fidanzato Corrado che non le scrive più dal 1942. Perfino Pasqua, l'aiutante del medico, ricorre a un filtro magico quando si innamora di lui. Tra Don Antonio e il dottor Marchetti scoppia una specie di guerra a distanza in cui restano coinvolti tutti, compresa Clamide, nipote di Don Antonio, che amoreggia con Galeazzo. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

a light-hearted and sweet comedy with two great actors
22 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

This is a light-hearted, funny and sweet comedy, finely balanced between farce and warm-hearted sentiments, entertaining though never silly or cheap. Do not expect a masterpiece, but a funny portrayal of the difficulties that the new doctor finds on arriving in a small town whose inhabitants, deeply rooted in tradition, are more easily reassured by potions and magical words than by medicine. As anyone can expect, watching Vittorio De Sica (in a well-rounded character who mixes cunning, charm and selfishness) and Mastroianni's opposing characters is a pleasure in itself. If you've enjoyed Ieri, Oggi e Domani or Peccato che sia una canaglia ("Too bad she's bad") you'll probably like Il medico e lo stregone.
