Omnipresent Irony
17 February 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Elia is a confirmed bachelor in the thirties, living with a housemaid in an Italian village. The film starts with men talking about Elia's unbearable character, and these statements are illustrated by him entering and insulting everybody who comes in his way. The housemaid finds women for Elia, but he always succeeds in chasing them away with his awfulness until on a rainy night beautiful Lisa knocks on the door...

Although this film is done with little expense, its obviously exaggerated character can be very amusing. Undoubtedly it is a matter of taste; either you love it or you hate it.
