Well done typical Italian film
4 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is nothing overly special about this Italian 1 hour and 30 minute (IMDB lists it as a 35 minute short, but it was on TV for 1 hour, 30 minutes, without commercials) which comes with English sub-titles. It is a common "who-dunnit" comedy-drama that is more entertaining than most and keeps the viewer wondering what is happening and who is responsible. As typical, everything comes together towards the end. There is light humor and especially good acting. I watched the TV version, so I cannot tell if there is any offensive material. The scenery is beautiful and the sets are colorful. The last scene with the suspect is my favorite when he fixes his gaze (I won't tell you what he looks at, but it is a hoot).
