Storyline

Maroso Golfetto is a firm manager from Veneto who is always yelling at his employees, all either immigrants or Southern Italians. He regularly appears on the local TV channel where he keeps denouncing the evils of immigration and is very popular with everybody including with kids. His speech hits home better than that of Lucia, their anti-racist schoolmistress. And what will be will be : by dint of invoking the help of God to rid Veneto of its immigrants the miracle finally happens : one morning they have all disappeared. But is that really a blessing ?

Disappointing Italian message fantasy.
24 September 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Until this one develops into an Italian take on "A Day Without Mexicans", it looks like it will be a class act. It opens nicely with the boy driver of the one bull cattle truck and Abatantuono's TV tirades but lapses into over-stretched magic realism, before its final sand hills joke.

TV demagogue Abatantuono, teacher Lodovini and cop Mastandrea prove to be interconnected, as life in Italy is disrupted when all the immigrants vanish. Individual scenes play nicely. The rabbit sub-plot is one of their best inventions.

Good cast and some nice Eastmancolor imagery.
