Storyline

A series of comic sketches revolving around the "mania" in people's deepest personality. In "The Elaboration", a hearse driver has his favorite hearse made out to perfection for his "clients". In "Sport" a bossy office supervisor loses a sports bet to co-workers and is forced to pimp out his wife, while one colleague decides to take advantage of it. In "Overtaking" a man tries to outrun a set of lights on a highway late at night... not realizing that it's an airplane. In "The Hobby" two best friends, Barbara and Carla, team up to find where one's husband is going to every weekend and being secretive about it. In "Advice" a bickering couple out for a drive bicker about one's well being which leads to a traffic accident. In "The Protest", Pasquale and Mario are two men who cannot seem to pass up every attempt to protest against the government from 1943 to present day 1964. In "The Antique", a couple travels to a remote monastery to shop for antiques and seek which ones to buy or leave. ... Written by matt-282

Uneven but it has a lot of nice vignettes
1 September 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"I Maniaci" is a highly uneven film that is still well worth seeing. It's an Italian film made up of lots of little skits. Some work, some do not. But they come so quickly that even with the lesser ones, you know a good one is soon coming. However, I did notice that the poorest vignettes occurred near the beginning, so if you find your attention waning--hold on--it will get better.

Of the skits, my favorites were the one about the REALLY obnoxious couple who visit a monastery as well as the hitchhiker. They were particularly funny though the rest are generally good. In the last one, however, they managed to make a funny skit--but a seriously flawed one where there is TONS of mugging and overacting.

Overall, a very good film that is light and simple entertainment. Just turn off your brain and enjoy.
