Live to win
11 April 2009 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

1943: Two American soldiers (Franco and Ciccio) are captured on a mission to find the German general von Kassler (Buster Keaton!) who lets them escape with secret documents - fakes that are intended to fall into the enemies' hands and cause confusion. But by mistake, the two captives get away with the real plans and then get in the middle of the attack, trying to survive in various disguises. Franco has a great scene when he holds a nonsensical speech to the soldiers ("we can only win the war if we don't lose it"). But this comedy by the busy and popular Sicilian duo Franco and Ciccio stands out from the rest by its guest star. Subtle touches like Keaton playing chess or piano make a difference. The stoicism of the silent Keaton provides a great contrast for the aggression and loudness of Franco Ressel as the colonel. A recommendable little comedy.
