Storyline

The marquis Galeazzo di Torre Alta is murdered by a mysterious killer who calls himself Diabolicus. His heirs are his three brothers and a sister, but all of them, with the exception of Monsignor Antonino di Torre Alta, are killed by Diabolicus. The police are unable to solve the case, but when Antonino gives his inheritance to Pasquale Bonocore, illegitimate son of his father and Pasquale is in prison and therefore can't be the killer, all the clues are in the hand of the police. Written by Piergiorgio Romani <p.romani@flashnet.it>

funny satire
16 January 2004 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie with my husband (he is Mexican, I am Italian) and we literally could not resist to laughter, maybe because we could get the jokes in Italian, which we understand perfectly. Of course, this is not one of those artistic movies leaving you uplifted, but it is entertaining. Moreover, I see it as a satire: my favorite characters are the General, the personified satire of fascism, and the horrible looking countess obsessed with youth and beauty. The ending is surprising as in mistery movie and funny at the same time.
