Giuliana de Sio,
I rented this DVD from the local rental shop, I have to say, for fair play, that I am a great fan of BOTH Vincenzo Salemme and his "long lost pal" Maurizio Casagrande (who has appeared in every single one of Salemme's movies).
Just as I expected from an extremely talented actor supported by a (once again) great Casagrande the film made me laugh my head off in several places.
The plot is very thought provoking, as it's the case with all of Salemme's works, you laugh a lot and then your mind starts to elaborate the "lessons in life" and "thought provoking hints" which Salemme wants the audience to meditate on.
If you like Italian comedy at its best, this is indeed a MUST SEE!
