This is a far cry from the best of the "Don Camillo" series. It's actually the one I less prefer. In this one, Don Camillo is going to Russia with Peppone, to see for itself what it's like to live in a communist country. Forget about Don Camillo being a monsignore (he was elevated to this post in the movie that come just before in the series), he's back to his job as the priest responsable for a small Italian parish. But we've got a feeling that Don Camillo's and Peppone's characters are growing old. It's probably a good thing that the series stops there.
Out of 100, I gave it 72. That's good for ** out of ****.
