Surviving Is Better than Living
3 September 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In August 1944, in the chaotic post-war Italy, the former boxer Dieci (Paolo Villaggi) organizes a troupe of five young starving men to fight box for food and small change in villages avid to celebrate the end of the war. While heading to Monteriggioni in an old truck, Diece rescues the black American private Washington (Childs Elijah Raynard) from an Italian family. Later he invites the fascist Rosa, who had her hair cut like a man to indicate that she was a traitor, to join the group. When they meet a troop of American soldiers, they are invited to exhibit in their base. Back on the road, they meet Wilma (Antonella Ponziani), who asks for a lift and invites them to a wedding party. During their trip, they learn lessons of life, friendship and betrayal. Years later, Dieci concludes that surviving is better than living.

"Cari Fottutissimi Amici" is a dramatic and extremely funny black comedy. The environment of a country in the post-war is unusual for a comedy, but Mario Monicelli gives the right doses of humor and drama in a perfect balance, and the story is never hysterically funny or corny. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Caros F… Amigos" ("Dear F... Friends")
