Poor Pozzetto
5 December 2005 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

In this bittersweet comedy, Pozzetto is a rich man obsessed by the idea of becoming poor. So, his psychiatric suggests him to leave home and live just like a poor man for some days. He will then become familiar with this way of living, and fear less the idea of becoming poor. So he does, and his old family & friends soon forget about him. They don't miss him at all. On the other hand, throughout the obstacles he meets a wonderful girl & a real good friend. So he discovers that having money doesn't mean you're really "rich", and begins to change his mind about the life he really wants to live.

A good movie, a great Pozzetto.
