Storyline

During the WWII Italians and English occupy alternatively a village between the Albanian and Grecian borders. It happens so often that, not only they use the same Hotel (the Iris) as headquarters, but also they find the time to build up a kind of friendship relation. In fact the two colonels, the Italian Col. Di Maggio and the English Henderson save each other their life. But one day German army orders to Di Maggio a massive bombing in order to destroy completely the village, killing all its occupants and inhabitants, including the girls for which the Italians fallen in love. Di Maggio refuses and is sentenced to death. It is just the night before the famous September the 8th 1943. Written by 1felco

A very good comedy!
27 June 2000 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This "war-comedy" is a really good one, even if little known. Featuring the unusual couple Antonio De Curtis-Walter Pidgeon, this is also a very funny movie, where the cleverness of Pidgeon reveals itself in the attempt to follow the classic "Totò"'s improvisation skill. Nino Taranto is as good as usual, and I have to signal that there is also an amusing scene involving Roland Bartrop and Totò, but I'm not sure if it was included in the reduced US version (I have seen only the full Italian version).
