Storyline

Durante la seconda guerra mondiale Natalino, col nome in codice di Cappellone, salva la vita ad un agente britannico, Harrison. Venti anni dopo quando si trova in cattive acque, Natalino accetta da Harrison di compiere un'ultima missione contro i nazisti: uccidere uno di loro dietro compenso di 100.000 dollari. Ma i tempi sono cambiati e Natalino non se la sente più di uccidere, così passa l'incarico a Ottone che a sua volta lo cede all'avvocato Ramirez che a sua volta... e così via. Con tanti passaggi sembra che l'incarico non debba venir eseguito. Ma un'auto con un morto carbonizzato risolve tutto. Natalino vola a Londra, seguito dai suoi complici, per reclamare il pagamento e qua scopre che il morto era incinta... E il vero nazista che fine ha fatto? Ed era veramente un nazista? Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Convoluted spy story
24 January 2007 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Italian Secret Service is a complex spy comedy that starts during 1944, quickly shifts to 'present day' Rome, and then dashes off to London, where our hero, former resistance fighter Natalino Tartufato (code name: Cappelone, and played by dapper Nino Manfredi), hooks up with some old wartime pals, including British agent Harrison (Clive Revill). It's old home week all around, as the now grey-templed anti-fascists are on the trail of an organisation of neo-Nazis attached to a 30,000,000 lire reward. Cappelone is constantly attached to a radio headset, through which he receives his orders, and he's supplied with a suitcase full of secret weaponry, including an exploding suppository. This is a film that seems to have lost something in translation: it looks good and has an intriguing and amusing story that takes an unexpected turn, but is frequently confusing, either due to poor dubbing or cuts made for Anglophone markets. There's something good here, though, which will only be fully revealed in the course of time via a subtitled and correctly formatted DVD--which I will purchase at the earliest opportunity!
