a delightful comedy
2 August 2006 | by (Saint Paul, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

This film, apparently not available in a 35mm print, is extremely good. Gassman in his various roles is very funny and his versatility is displayed quite well. In one role, he strongly resembles the character, Bruno, whom he played in Risi's The Easy Life, even down to having the same type of horn sound, with his sports car. If you get a chance, see this film. I am indeed fortunate to be in Paris at the moment where there is an Italian Comedy festival at the Reflet Medicis cinema. many of the films they are showing are not available on DVD. In fact the film was shown on a DVD, that is, apparently (I asked the manager of the theater about this) only available to movie theaters and not to the public.
