It's nor children who are seen but not heard. It's father.
9 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nino Manfredi is the father suffering from vignettes from a marriage, saddled with a terrific wife (Leslie Caron) whose nagging family won't stay out and whose reproductive system won't stop reproducing. It's just after World War II, and the family is arguing over trivial things (like the end of the European monarchy system following the war) and differences between the two families. It's a great marriage, but living too close to the very matriarchal wife's side of the family threatens to tear down their marriage, simply by tossing the hard working Manfredi to the dude.

While Caron obviously provides her own voice here, in many cases (particularly the voices of the children), the dubbing is really bad. Manfredi is subject to the intrusion of strangers in his own home, while the big hearted Caron simply tries to please everybody. The selfish children are nerve grating, while some of the dubbing sounds like cartoon voices.

This is pretty entertaining considering the familiarity of the story, and it is a reminder of how poor dad always ends up getting the shaft when children start coming into the relationship. At times, they don't even sound like children with their direct demands and uninnocent selfishness. Call this "How to survive fatherhood and the matriarchy in one easy lesson".
