Did You Know?


The movie was first intended as the sixth in the "Don Camillo" series, starring Fernandel and Gino Cervi. After a few weeks of shooting in July 1970, Fernandel had to leave the set, because of failing health. Production was halted but investors in the movie wanted to resume it with a mostly new team. Co-star Gino Cervi and original director Christian-Jaque did not agree to pursue the film without Fernandel, so the series did not continue. See more »

Don't see this movie
17 August 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This "Don Camillo e i giovani d'oggi" (Don Camillo and the young of today) is a pale, crappy imitation of the classic series. The spirit of the book ( the last one ,because Guareschi died) was all lost; the acting is wrong (no fun, the character looks angry ); Lionel Started played Peppone ( Peppone does means "big Joe") and he is less then inspired; Gastone Moschin played an harsh and despicable Don Camillo, who won a " boxing match" kicking Peppone 's son ( the hell's angel boss, Veleno ) in the nuts ( in the novel Don Camillo fights as usual : punching and bodyslammed his younger opponent) !!! Get it? In the novel Don Camillo is an aged but still strong and leal fighter while in the movie is a unpleasant and dirty cheater. His main rival\alley is Veleno (Venom) , Peppone 's son : a rude and muscolar hell's angel but still a good fellow : brave and leal. In the movie Veleno was portrait as a some ugly street thug.

This movie paired in ugliness with the infamous remake by Terence Hill but it is not a nice family movie, it appear more a darker , mean version of Don Camillo . My advice: buy only the original Fernandel -Gino Cervi movies: see them in English and later in Italian with subtitles and stay away from further versions.
