Trivia

The title originates as a spin off from the big hit of Miracle of Marcelino (1955) where Pablito Calvo acted the title role. The name was kept just for advertising reasons, even if the plot has little to do with the other movie, if not the fact that the kid is an orphan. See more »

Marcelino in Italy
13 December 2013 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

No, that's not it. But the title is a reference to "Marcelino pan y vino", in which the very same Pablito Calvo played a character with that name. Advertising reasons is why they kept the name, because the plot has nothing to do, even if the kid is orphan.

This very simple plot is about a thief nicknamed "Il Professore", who pretends to be the uncle of little Marcellino Merini. The two become friends and end up living together... until a real uncle of the child takes him (the child) and makes him beg in the streets.

It's a generally good movie, although some moments are not all of what they could have been, but that's alright. One of the best scenes is the ending, which is very unexpected. Wow, what an ending! Whoever came up with the idea of making the ending like that had a brilliant mind.

"Il Professore" is finely portrayed by an Italian actor known by the stage name Totò. Pablito Calvo enchants once again in another expressive performance and, I must say, even though he was Spanish, he could speak Italian very well. I don't even notice a Spanish accent.

Title in Portugal: não sei.
