Storyline

The film recounts a day the department stores of Rome. Several customers parade departments and speakers with some curious stories. The director of the beautiful shopping center is a depressed man, but he is forced to smile and pretends to be optimistic with his business; an overseer naive fails to stop a gang of thieves, although the man feels himself bully and reliable; an actor depressed and alcoholic does not know whether to abandon his stage career to risursi acting in squalid advertising.

One great Italian-style comedy
11 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

I think that Italian movies are going to be studied in the future. This one contains fantastic characters such as Marco Salviati (Nino Manfredi) and many more... This movie is now available in DVD format for those people who want to enjoy a "little" voyage into a well played series of sketches. Lino Banfi plays with his daughter an extremely funny role. Michele Placido is a perfect lead manager and Paolo Panelli appears in one of his last performances. Remember that this movie has no formal errors : well shooted, good and simple editing for a pseudo-complete undubbed audio (a lot of Italian movies have poor re-dubbed audio). Music is not really nice, with a lot of cheap synthesized parts, but the theme is quite fun!
