two Italians we all miss a lot
6 February 2005 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Gassman & Tognazzi...need anything else ?

it's a movie coming from the "good old times" when there had no need of special effects,stunts or whatever, a plot,some professionals and a stage,action !

this good work has recently been published on DVD.

unluckily the overall quality of the encoding is not very high anyway it's such better than most VHS,so...

it's a masterpiece,no doubt.

no matter where u live,no matter what language u speak...when the work is well done u will even understand an Icelandic movie subtitled in Thai !

;-)
