Great little film.

A cracking little road movie from the great,grand Sergio Corbucci. It runs like a neo realistic Peter Fonda cult classic. Last seen in the Uk in the dark distant 1980s, late night on the then minority Channel 4, this film is long overdue a revival. Giannini is brilliant in the main role, there is a devil may care attitude to life that runs through this film from the first frame to the last line which is a total killer.
