The village of mayor Peppone and Don Camillo, after much dispute, gets a assigned a sister village in Russia. When Peppone and his comrades decide to attend the ceremony on the other side of the iron curtain, Don Camillo wants to join. Peppone is strictly against this but after Don Camillo threatens him to disclose information about an earlier side step the mayor agrees. Don Camillo arranges for false papers: He is now comrade Tarocci. Only Peppone and the other villagers know who he really is. In Russia the agenda includes various cultural events: Ballet, Opera, a fishing competition and various parties... Written by
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 ****.
