Sleazy & fun low-life drug smugglers in underground Bari
28 June 2001 | by (Rome) – See all my reviews

One of the most original italian flicks in decades, LaCapaGira deals with a somewhat classic comical view of petty criminals. It's a language/face-oriented, underground screwball comedy with a slight slapstick touch and a twist: characters speak a local slang quite difficult to understand, and the italian release of the movie came with italian subtitles! Funny, well directed and full of interesting actors, LaCapaGira is an ultra low-budget gem soaked in peculiar irony. A must see.
