I saw this movie must be 30 years ago now, and I will never forget it. It is started out like comedy (that is exactly what you expect when Alberto Sordi is in main role), but it turned into a real life horror very quickly. Many things you will see in this movie are real - taken from the life in Rome (at least I think that was Rome) at that time. The reality of the settings and physiological terror the main characters are experiencing make a lasting impact here. I am waiting for this movie to come out on DVD, but it is not happening for now. If you have an opportunity to see it, do not miss it. You will never forget it.
