well, a local essay cinema showed this movie today. i saw it the last time maybe 15 years ago, and the movie is more than 40 years old. a masterpiece. the Italian spoken is so overwhelmingly old, it took me 10 minutes to get into it - and i'm Italian. in fact, i once saw an interview with the authors saying that it took them very long to sort out the exact language. i wonder what happens when it gets translated. for 2007 times it's slightly slowish, but it got me laughing on the floor more than a couple of times, something that didn't happen to me in a theater in a looooong time. some of the initlai sequences set a standard for amazing comedy. a superbly crafted movie. monicelli is great, gassman and the cast are fabulous. hats off.
