Storyline

Leon de Paris is a modest dog-barber in Paris. In search of more satisfaction. Thanks to the economic helps of Fanny (his terrible mother in law), he succeeds to set up in Roma a very stylish "Coiffeur pour homme". But due to this, his life with Fanny isn't funny, and more, Leon has to dissimulate homosexuality for job reasons. He decides to stop this nightmare engaging "Er Cuculo" (the cuckoo) a B-gangster to simulate a robbery. In fact the plan is to take all Fanny's money, share it among them and escape in Montecarlo. Will the strange couple succeed? Written by 1felco

Brilliant B-comedy.
15 February 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Il lupo (the wolf) e l'agnello (the lamb). Since from its Italian original title is clear this movie is based on the classical "strange couple". (French title is referred to "er cuculo" (the cuckoo) character.) We are not talking about a masterpiece, but the story is enough original and Michel Serrault with his acting manage to give a bit of light to this late 70s B-comedy. I think this movie isn't so bad, but you have to consider we aren't talking about "Le diner de cons" (1998). I had big funny moments; the contrasts among the rude cuckoo (Thomas Milian), the fake homosexual, Fanny (one of the biggest b**ch ever) and the rest of the family (including the poodle!) were irresistible. The production is poor, almost all the movie is indoors, but story and gags are good and brilliant. If it was done in Hollywood this was a blockbuster.

My vote is (a generous) 7 (out of 10).
