"Fascisti su Marte" is a feature film based on the TV series "Fascisti su Marte", included in the show "Il caso Scafroglia" by Corrado Guzzanti, who's the co-director, the co-writer, the narrator and the leading male in this likable film.
The TV series, composed by brief sketches, was smashing: funny, witty and irresistible. But it's impossible to bring to the silver screen (in a film of about 90 minutes) a story who in five minutes has told everything.
The plot stretches itself until the end, and, if at the beginning you laugh heartily, then you start yawning with boredom because ideas are scarce.
But this film has two credits: the inventiveness of cinematographer, costume designer and production designer, who created the planet Mars from a Magliana's quarry (in Rome) and with a small budget, and maybe it's the first film who speaks ironically about the Fascism in Italy.
The signature tune at the beginning is mythical! "Faascisti su Maarte, rosso pianeta bolscevico e traditor " (fascists on Mars, red Bolshevik traitor planet).
