nice e nontrivial entertainment
17 February 2014 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

A funny and underrated movie, artfully packaged with limited economic means and non-professional film actors. Gnocchi, Pivetti and Solenghi are amusing and intelligent show-men of theater and television programs. Without any ambition to judge and draw conclusions on the social, political and cultural reality, the movie promptly manages to stay on the Italian political facts of mid 90s in a non-trivial manner. The environment is that o Po Valley (nearly the same as Don Camillo film series) and the movie describes political and personal conflicts between left-wing and local separatist activists. Perhaps the last movie which belongs to the tradition of the "Italian comedy", realized by experienced workers of the genre. Good location, filming and production.
