We have here four of the greatest Italian Comedians (also excellent Drama Actors): Enrico Maria Salerno, Vittorio Gassman, Nino Manfredi, Gastone Moschin. Eliminating Gastone Moschin (he's the only one still alive), because here has a small secondary role, the three others shine, testing their huge talent. This time, Manfredi, in the segment "L'Avventura di un soldato" does a completely speechless role, expressing everything just facial and through body language. Manfredi also directed the episode. Simply exceptional! Enrico Maria Salerno and Vittorio Gassman are at the height of their personal charm as usual. Along Salerno excels Claudia Mori, Catherine Spaak(in the segment "Le donne"). Along Gassman we have the joy of meeting again this great Actress called Nadja Tiller(in the segment "L'avaro"). Last but not least, in the segment "Il serpente", we enjoy a great acting demonstration by the superb Lilli Palmer. And Piero Umiliani's music is downright delightful. Great film!
