Are the first to post comments on this very nice and foamy film of my fellow Cecchi Zalone, the film is really a real treat for the people of the south. It is based on dialogue and prejudices people in the north against the south of us called "southerners" from the hard core of the Northern League. Comedy Bari, irreverent and vulgar, but this was pleasing to many people, myself understood. Checco is a true comic, caricature against hyper - show business personalities and politicians. A character who has started its way into local program Baresi and then emerge nationally through Zelig. I am sure that his career will be long and his way of presenting the faults in the south, I find it ironic really nice.
Has a great road.
