A great cast lead by an unexpected Gianfraco Tognazzi, a great Luca Lionello and a much underrated Libero Di Rienzo can't manage to survive the heavy, overwrought and ultimately, unintentionally hilarious screenplay. The close to the knuckle story needed a writer with a minimum of culture and flair. Here, Claudio Fragasso, the director, shows how competent he can be behind the camera but he's tied up to a script that doesn't allow any form of truth to emerge. The characters don't have a coherent psychological path to travel. Everything is on the nose and hammered on, again and again. I felt frustrated because here there is a strong film trying to come out and at every turn, an insane piece of dialogue will destroy the intention to a pulp. Pity.
