Warning: this movie may cause you to die laughing!!!!
This is a great comedy! Extremely funny, warm and insightful. It is one of those movies you can look again and again. In general, I am a big fan of the Italian movies, especially from the period of 50s to early 80s. By the way, if you liked this movie you will almost certainly like the movies by Emir Kusturica.
