Trivia

One Night during the Shooting, a then unknown person uninvited entered the Hotel Room of Actress Uta Levka and crawled into her bed. When she turned on the light, she recognized this Person as Director Lucio Fulci who made obvious sexual advances to her. Levka managed to make him leave her room. During the next day, Fulci treated her very badly, often angrily yelling "Cut!" for no reason and insulting her all the time, complaining about her performance in a very offending manner. Eventually, Levka freaked out and, in front of the whole crew, loudly told him to stop his awful behavior, "just because I wouldn't let you stay with me in my bed last night". Fulci stared at her for a long moment and then continued shooting without loosing another word. See more »

Not bad at all
6 March 2007 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

Operazione San Pietro is an OK eurocomedy. It's not one of Lucio Fulci's best comedies (his other movies featuring Lando Buzzanca - The Eroticist, Young Dracula - are funnier), but it's still watchable and entertaining. It's not a real ripoff of Dino Risi's film, as an other reviewer mentioned (though I haven't seen Operazione San Gennaro), since it was made (written, produced etc.) by the same people, and - as far as I know - the story and the characters are very different too (Fulci's film is not a real "heist" or "caper" movie). The Italian title implies that it's a sequel, and it does feature similar situations, but 1. that's not stealing in my opinion 2. it is very common in case of movies like this. It seems to be true that Operazione San Pietro is actually a "semi-sequel" to Heinz Rühmann's Father Brown movies, at least the German title (Die Abenteuer des Kardinal Braun) suggests that.

The acting is OK (Robinson is quite good in a parody of his earlier roles), the characters are funny, the direction is stylish (though not as stylish as Fulci's giallos or westerns).

The car stunts are similar to the ones in Louis de Funes' Gendarme movies, which is quite interesting, since the Funes movie which features almost the same stunts (Le Gendarme se marie) was released a year after Operazione San Pietro. (So if anybody is a "thief" among these people, it must be Jean Girault, the director of the Gendarme movies.) All in all, if you like European (italian) comedies, give this one a try. It's not a gory movie at all, but it's still a Fulci-film with Fulci's stylistics (and it's a lot better and stylish than some horrors he made in the eighties).

(John Bartha appears uncredited as the "talkative" one of the thugs who beat up Robinson.)
