When a Peter Sellerish Peasant from an unidentified Muslim country decides to 'visit' Italy ( a country he dreamed of emigrating to), his fantasy is made greater due to a tactical mistake.The vessel that is transporting him and his kin there, has to ditch them on a beach... and, separated from the rest, he unwillingly wanders into a 'Club Med' style holiday resort! From this moment on his Odyssey is just that. Odd! A very pretty teenage blonde falls for him, mistaking his few Italian phrases (which he has learned from T.V. commercials) for wise sayings. Her 40 yr. old, ambitious, Berlusconi-inspired, boyfriend, at first jealous, turns this mishap to his advantage, exploiting the poor immigrant during a Marketing Convention. Confusion turns to Chaos... then to Mayhem. The film is nearly funny, and definitely tries to update the Hollywood humor of "The Party", and of "Being There"... and nearly pulls it off. Ahmet Ugurlu , as a Peter Sellers alias is excellent, as is young Italian 'starlet' Martina Stella. We also enjoyed Prodan's take on Umberto Virgili, the Career Minded snake,and owner of "Millionaire" tourist villages. But sloppy direction,and too much zig-zagging eventually 'down' this pleasure boat.
