QFC - Aldo Giovanni & Giacomo get deeper and deeper
These guys are getting deeper and deeper in their movies. Whoever is looking for the senseless fun of Tre Uomini e una Gamba or Cosi è la Vita will be disappointed. Sure, the gags are there, but there's also a movie, something that has kept reoccurring since Chiedimi se Sono Felice.
So this film has a plot, and a theme. Mid-life crisis, seen from different angles. Marriage crisis and other things that take the three on a journey, although short, to Claudia, the love interest. But are they really looking for Claudia or just something, a reason to live. The film is almost poetic and a lot more serious than the others.
But again, people that are looking for silly laughs should stay away. This film still gets laughs, but it's more a film than a succession of gags and comedy sketches. So, no prejudice is advised.
