fun is guaranteed with Pozzetto
13 September 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I am a big fan of Pozzetto and I enjoy his comedies, even when the plot is a bit weak like in "Fico d'India". The movie is about a province Latin Lover, Arrigo, who, among many others, chases Pozzetto's wife. For a series of unlikely events, Arrigo ends up completely paralyzed in Pozzetto's bed. Pozzetto has to take care of him and his tortured by the jealousy. Pozzetto must keep secret the presence of Arrigo in his house. The funny part is when in the village people start to realize that something strange is going on, and gossip about the strange "menage a trois". The movie is enjoyable, although not comparable with "La patata bollente", a true masterpiece.
