Excellent!
1 November 2017 | by rodrig58See all my reviews

This movie is an absolute jewel! Some great actors, and the most savory is Toto! Toto was and remains something unique, unmatched by any other comic actor. His personality is quite exceptional. We then have the super-talented Ugo Tognazzi, the super-beautiful Virna Lisi, the charming Raimondo Vianello. Very good are also Lauretta Masiero, Francesco Mulé and Lia Zoppelli. An excellent movie, super-comedy!
