Hilarious comedy on the world of football fans !
16 March 2002 | by (Rome,Italy) – See all my reviews

Albero Sordi is known in Italy, not only for his many comical and dramatic film roles but also for playing parts which reflected the new realities of Italian society.In 1970 the football sports industry was nothing new , but a comedy/comical film about it definitely was.

Albero Sordi plays the part of Benito Fornaciari, a pale, religiously devout Catholic Upper Middle class Italian, who inherits from a long lost uncle a minor league football club , of all things !! He decides to visit the club so as to sell it.But the local population has other ideas ,through an almost armed uprising they "force" him not to sell the club, but rather, lead it to other glories on the football field.Gradually his initial reservations about football slowly erode away to be replaced by an almost fanatical devotion to "his" football club, to the point that he abandons his family,friends and home town. He also becomes involved with other pleasures of life, like loving the beautiful female cook,eating his heart out from the local culinary pleasures,and best of all hanging out with the football players during their training retreats. This film is in the Alberto Sordi style, of how an Italian can change from being a very conservative person to a complete bohemian outgoing person.Showing the various shades of Italians you can find in Italy,whom can easily revert from one character to another(I'm not sure if that happens so easily in reality,but for the films sake, its always a good laugh !).

Surely a film to see if you want to spend 2 hours having a good laugh ! A 7 film.
