Storyline

Sei persone sono sullo stesso treno, in viaggio dall'Italia verso Montecarlo. Alcuni vorrebbero giocare (e vincere) al Casinò, altri stanno portando un cagnolino ad una anziana e ricca signora per ottenere una ricompensa, un altro sta raggiungendo la moglie in vacanza. Ma la vecchia donna viene uccisa e, per paura e per goffaggine, tutti si ritrovano sospettati dell'omicidio. Written by rosebud6

Another coincidence? Maybe. Let's hope it's the last one
27 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

Seven Italians - Remo (Vittorio Gassman) and Marina (Silvana Mangano), Quirino (Nino Manfredi) and Giovanna (Franca Valeri), and Alberto (Alberto Sordi) - are arrested in Montecarlo for the gruesome murder of an old, rich woman. Quirino and Giovanna have been found near the crime scene with the victim's dog; Marina and Remo had the corpse in their suitcase; Alberto met them all in the previous days and had a grudge against the victim. The Inspector (Bernard Blier) investigates.

The performances by the all-star cast elevate the movie. These seven giants of Italian comedy play the wretched imbeciles who become accidentally involved in the investigation, and yet, as they clumsily lie out of fear of the police, see an incredible amount of clues against them piling up. Sordi, Gassman and Manfredi are particularly brilliant. French character actor Blier (seen as Sordi's memorably awkward sidekick in Riusciranno i nostri eroi) plays the inspector.

Very enjoyable.
