Storyline

Three segments: in the first one (Il vittimista) a teacher is obsessed with the idea his wife betrays him. When he goes to a shrink he lets him understand that his fear has to do with him having cheated on her for some time. When he dumps the mistress and confesses to his wife she forgives him while the mistress seems to take it rather seriously. In the second segment (Sadik) a wife has her husband dress himself with a comic character costume. In the last segment (L'autostrada del sole) a man has to spend the night in a mysterious hotel because of his car breaking down. Written by Salvatore Santangelo <pappagone2@libero.it>

We met the monsters and they are us
28 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

Thrilling is a comedy composed by three unrelated episodes.

In the first a smug teacher, played by Nino Manfredi, is terrified by his jealous (and possibly murderous) wife. Not bad, although unexceptional. Thankfully, Manfredi - in a somewhat unusual role for him- is always a pleasure to watch.

The second episode is the shortest and the most cartoonish - it feels like a sketch. A desperate businessman (Walter Chiari) is forced by his obnoxious wife to dress up as her favorite comic book hero and break into their house to "spice up" their wedding. The extreme simplicity of the whole thing is redeemed by an amusing performance by Chiari as the clumsy, miserable and spineless husband.

The third episode is the best. The protagonist (Alberto Sordi) pursues through the highway a driver who has damaged his car and ends up in an isolated hotel. Believing the driver is hiding in the building he rents a room, but soon discovers the hotel owners are murdering their guests. Sordi is hilarious as his typical character, a mediocre, petty, cowardly buffoon. Croatian starlet Sylva Koscina, very popular in Italy in those days, plays a mysterious guest.

7/10
