good Italian Comedy (I watched it in Russian translation, still very funny)
29 January 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

A fun movie to watch, you wont regret it if u like Italian Comedy and the Actor himself (Celentano). In the movie Adriano Celentano (Elia) thinks that women are no good and prefers to live his healthy life alone with his dog and House keeper. Until one day a beautiful young woman comes to his house asking to stay for the night. Elia makes a horrible first impression by being rude towards the stranger. Nevertheless, she seems to like it about him and that what makes her want to stay in his company.
