Comedy of errors on Italian politics
10 August 2008 | by (Rome, Italy) – See all my reviews

In this masterpiece, freely inspired to "The Inspector General" by Gogol, Zampa gives us one of the best examples of Italian comedy in the period of "neorealismo". This comedy of errors reveals the widespread corruption behind the veneer of Patriotism and Fascism, that was largely the norm under Mussolini.

But it is not simply politics, because by looking at Fascism, Zampa makes us think about some invariables in human society: corruption, malpractice, petty men with petty interests. This general moral stance is one of the movie's strong points: as actor Manfredi says, in our society "Magna tu cche mmagno anch'io", i.e. "grab anything and I'll do the same".
