Storyline

Raffaele Capece, un insegnante di mandolino, fa il posteggiatore nei locali pubblici. Ha due guai incurabili : ha una gamba offesa ed un padre inguaribile giocatore, che sperpera al lotto ed alla roulette i magri guadagni del figlio. E proprio a causa del vizio paterno si trova coinvolto in una serie di misteriosi omicidi, collegati ad una grossa quantità di denaro. Per ottenere i soldi, bisogna entrare in possesso di un prezioso cucchiaio, sul quale è registrata la prova di crimini commessi durante la seconda guerra mondiale. Dopo aver rischiato la vita diverse volte, Raffaele giungerà finalmente a capo dell'intricata faccenda. Ed entrerà anche in possesso dei soldi. Written by rosebud6

Strange misfire
3 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

It's hard to know what kind of audience the people who made this film had in mind. Riz Ortolani's music, Marcello Mastroianni's naive but good-hearted character and the occasional gags seem to suggest a comedy, but the picture isn't funny enough to be a comedy. The plot (which you will need a scorecard to keep straight, and even then you'll probably fail) and the original Italian title seem to indicate a thriller, but it's not thrilling enough to be a thriller. It has a good cast (including Ornella Muti, who is literally "dreamily beautiful" here - you can barely believe that a woman so beautiful is real and not just a dream), but it wastes it in insignificant roles. Out of respect for these actors, and for one funny scene with Marcello and a beefy hood who's forcing him to walk up some stairs, I give this film ** out of 4.
