In 1940s Venice, after twenty years of marriage, a Professor and his younger wife witness the passion wane. Now, all that remains is to confess the rousing thoughts to an elaborate diary hoping to break free from ties and inhibitions.
This is a refreshing Italian comedy about two charming crooks and a bright kid, with some fine situation comedy, excellent timing, very good acting (especially from the three main actors, the boy included), a natural feel and a few emotional undertones (luckily not treated too mushy). The rhythm is alert but not rushed, the script and directing are generally fine (except a few moments when the crooks seem a bit too gullible), and there are no fart jokes and no boorish sexual innuendos.
So why not give it a higher vote? Unfortunately, it's too long or diluted as a miniseries, considering the amount of comedic or cinematic material. Perhaps the first part was a hit in Italy and they wanted to cash in, as it usually happens. It's really a shame, because otherwise it had all the ingredients for an excellent comedy.
