Storyline

Mario, un ristoratore salernitano con locale a Casale Marittimo, da poco fallito, viene scambiato per ispettore della Regione da un gruppo di ex operai che hanno impiantato in una cascina un allevamento di struzzi e che aspettano, dalla Regione appunto, dei finanziamenti. Come nei precedenti film di Virzì, la leggerezza regna padrona e la commedia degli equivoci tende alla favola surreale : manca la luce e si accendono delle candele; arriva la neve, che mancava da anni; ci sono magiche apparizioni (la Madonna e San Giuseppe) e così via. La felicità è dietro l'angolo? Rimboccandosi le maniche, forse.... ! Written by rosebud6

Against all bad lucks
22 March 2000 | by (Castle Rock, Maine) – See all my reviews

This could be a true story and it would be wonderful, if it really happens. It is the story of a group of people in despair (Mario with a failed restaurant and three brothers with a breeding of ostriches near Cecina) who casually meet together. Mario is the name of a man, who could save the breeding from the end and when the brothers meet the failed Mario (instead of the rich) at the station, they believe he is their savior. Mario would like to explain, but when he finds love and friendship in that big and fool family, he prefers to continue his lie. At the end of the Christmas night, they'll discover the truth, but the end will be happy and beautiful. It's a tender comedy, which remembers other masterpieces of Italian cinema at his best like "Miracolo a Milano". It's a story of a friendship (even if there's interest behind their kindness) with a great Francesco Paolantoni. A moment to remember is the one "A Natale non si soffre più!" (At Christmas, we won't suffer anymore!). Fantastic: 10 out of 10.
