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
Those who have seen The Eroticist know that Lucio Fulci can do comedy. In fact, he did comedy before he did horror. This is only the second of his comedy films released on DVD that I know of.
Italian comedies were very popular in the 70s, especially sex comedies, especially with Edwige Fenech, who also did one with Fulci: La Pretora.
This film is a collection of short skits, and there is surely a few that you will enjoy. Even if you don't find one funny, no fear, as it will not last too long, and there will be one that is hilarious coming soon.
We get to see the ever lovely Barbara Steele in an episode where the wife and the mistress are comparing notes and surmise that the husband is cheating on both of them with a third girl, or is he?
