Storyline

An episodic satire of the political and social status of Italy in the seventies, through the shows of one day of a television channel. An English language lesson turns into a killing of a black dignitary of an embassy by a CIA agent and then into his own killing by another colleague. In a television film, the police are befooled by a fake bomb and put a real one in order not to be derided by the public. In a film inquisition show, the bishop of Naples speaks highly of the importance of the family, but a child who lives a miserable family life kills himself. In the debate that follows it is proposed that they should eat the children, as Swift had said. In the next episode, a general who is in the toilet is called for the NATO parade, but the flasher breaks and in his effort to fix it, he dirts allover and kills himself. In a children's show an inspector finds excuses and delays the arrest of a powerful man. In an inquiry a pensioner is happy with his petty pension, but cries when he ... Written by Alkistis Zografou

great movie
23 November 2007 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

Excellent and entertaining comedy. What makes it even more enjoyable is that the things they made fun of in 1978 didn't change much in our present society - politicians, religion, the army, police, corruption... Even though it is very funny – almost everything in the movie has a deeper social/political sense and tells you something about life. Even the WC scene is more than a dumb physical sketch. The movie will be interesting especially for people interested in politics, power, religion, government – which actually is all about power. Although I see in the keywords – that the movie is about 'female nudity' – unfortunately I didn't see any... Another great thing about this movie is the casting - even for the small parts.
