"...in che senso?!"

Three man (playing by Carlo Verdone) and three different story: Leo is a shy guy, and it's world is only the job, the mother and Ladispoli. But he meet Marisol (Verónica Miriel), and it's way to see the world will begin to change. Enzo is the contrary of Leo. It's a boy much outlandish, tries to attract people with it's outlandish stories. While he is travel for a vacation, a friend of this will be felt badly in it's car. But for Enzo it is all a fact of nervousness. Ruggiero is a boy who lives in a community, and when he come to Rome, it finds again the father. He invites Ruggiero to pass a day between the old ones walls of house. And he meet old faces known in the past. All will find it changed.

A great comedy, with many phrases rendered celebrates from the big actor Verdone. I council this film to who wants to know the comic Carlo Verdone.
