Storyline

Bancomat è un piccolo truffatore, "specializzato" in carte di credito. Una mattina deve essere scortato dal carcere al tribunale da un giovane poliziotto, frustrato aspirante scrittore. Per caso quest'ultimo si trova disarmato dal carcerato ed in sua balia. Nel frattempo arriva un altro giovane, aspirante inventore di giocattoli, che vorrebbe denunciare al poliziotto il furto della sua auto, ma viene sequestrato anche lui. La situazione precipita : un'altra auto della polizia si accorge dell'accaduto e comincia l'inseguimento. Ne succedono di tutti i colori : gli inseguiti vengono dati per morti nell'esplosione dell'auto, si trovano a dormire in un cimitero e prendono i vestiti ad un cadavere, incontrano una ragazza...particolare, che cambierà la loro vita. Continuano il tragitto insieme e diventano amici, scoprendo alla fine che......non tutto è quello che sembra ! Così è la vita ! Written by rosebud6

A comedy about life
12 February 2004 | by (L'Aquila (Italy)) – See all my reviews

Second film by the Aldo,Giovanni & Giacomo trio released one year after the unexpected success of "Tre uomini e una gamba". I like both the scenery, partly settled outdoor in the beautiful cornice of "Gran Sasso d'Italia", and the melancholy inspiration, a peculiarity of Aldo, Giovanni & Giacomo films. The title "Così è la vita" reflects mixing and matching of situations that everyone can experiment during own life. It's funny the mass revenge organized by the "angel" Clara ("Marina Massironi") that shows as the injustices will be punished from god.

My vote is 8.
