Storyline

Kirk Warren, a former spy, is to be executed because he tried to steal a million dollars. But he is saved by Colonel Smithson because Sir Wilcox has prepared a mission for him. Warren has to steal a secret formula in Switzerland and try to expose the real identity of Mr. X. Kirk leaves London and Alina, his girl, together with three clumsy friends to accomplish his not so secret mission. But Kirk's great love is always a million dollars and not a secret formula. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

A Disneyland attraction...
25 December 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Duccio Tessari's "Kiss kiss, bang bang", one of the funniest Italian parody of the late '60s(Tessari and Corbucci will be linked to this genre forever..),is a sort of spy-movie in which Giuliano Gemma(or Montgomery Wood?;))plays the role of an intellectual (and extremely simple..)version of Connery's James Bond ("thunderball" was made in 1965). The movie reminds me a Disneyland attraction:the "world" the director (and the writers:Tessari/Corbucci/Di Leo)offer us is mad,senseless,confused,but it seems to be based on a series of strong, basic rules that give it coherence and truth. That's why it seems to anticipate,of about 30 years,the best Wes Anderson's inventions and collaborate to the birth of the so-called post-modern cinema.
