Storyline

Il mondo che ruota attorno alle corse dei cavalli ed in particolare alle scommesse è il protagonista del film; mondo rappresentato da Mandrake, Pomata e Felice. Il primo sempre sul punto di sposare Gabriella, il secondo in perenne fuga dai suoi creditori. Quelli che li accomuna è il fatto di perdere sempre e comunque. Poi un giorna Gabriella dà a Mandrake tre nomi di brocchi da giocare a una corsa tris. Mandrake si lascia convincere da Pomata a puntare invece su un vincente sicuro che naturalmente perde. Come perde Mandrake i venti milioni che avrebbe vinto giocando i nomi suggeriti da Gabriella. Guai in vista per tutti. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

thanks tv!
13 June 2003 | by (Venezia, Italy) – See all my reviews

When in the 1976 "Febbre da cavallo" exit in cinema not so much people went to see it. The status of "cult" movie starts from the various nocturnal passages in the private tv, during the '80. That's why people loves "Febbre" in this way (a little bit exaggerated). It's a personal people discover. This is not the "pinnacle" of italian comedy. It's only a little movie but funny and memorable in some of its parts. There is one thing over others: the actors are really good, better then some late italian comedies, in a time when comedy leaves for sexy italian comedy, the "commediaccia". So, no Alberto Sordi, not Tognazzi but Gigi Proietti (an excellent, hystrionic theathre actor), and Enrico Montesano, in one of his few good performance on cinema. Enjoy this movie and..."vai cor tango!"
