Christian De Sica,
Any movie with Adriano Celentano in it is usually funny and always entertaining.
Grandi Magazzini is certainly both funny and very entertaining! Along with him and many others like Enrico Montesano and Michele Placido, Lino Banfi and Renato Pozzetto, provide the film with different layers of comedy which allows each comic to bring their unique perspective to the screen while incorporating in into the main storyline with hilarious results. Italian comedies like this manage to blend quick one-liners with perfected slapstick, very reminiscent of the Marx brother's films of the 30's and 40's. This film works because no one is taking themselves too seriously and it seems everyone is having fun. Also it's important here that no one actor is the 'lead' but many contribute and work excellent as a team. I am hoping this will be released sometime soon on DVD so that I can see it again after many years. I wonder if the producers could be convinced to do a sequel all these years later???
