Storyline

A by-the-book captain is ordered to capture a strategic village in Italy. The Italian soldiers are willing to surrender, if they can have a festival first. The lieutenant convinces the captain this is the only way. Because of aerial reconnaissance, they must look like they are fighting. To sort this out an intelligence officer is sent in. Meanwhile the festival gets complicated with the mayor's daughter. Written by Bernard chandler <bernie@nationwide.net>

Goofs

When the German doctor examines Colonel Kastorp, he says he has been dead about an hour. When the Italians pick him up to take him away, rigor mortis has set in. Rigor mortis doesn't occur until up to 3 or 4 hours after death. It is unlikely that this amount of time occurred between the Colonel's death and the Italians taking him away. See more »

Crazy funny
25 October 2002 | by (Cambridge, MA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen -- one part social commentary, three parts random chaos. If you like your movies to make sense, you won't enjoy this one; if you like "Paris When it Sizzles," _Catch-22_, or any Tom Stoppard novels, this will be right up your alley. It's very hard to find, though; I saw it on television in London back in 1994 and haven't been able to find any video rental store that carries it.
