We met the monsters and they are us

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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 decides to rent a room, but he discovers the hotel owners are murder their guests to rob them. Sordi is hilarious as his typical character, a mediocre, noisy, petty, cowardly buffoon. Croatian starlet Sylva Koscina (very popular in Italy in those days) plays a mysterious guest.

Overall, not great but decent, as each episode is better than average, and with a sly sarcastic undertone.

7/10
