Don Camillo is now a bishop, Peppone is now a senator, but their rivalry is as fierce as when they were just a village priest, and a village administrator. Don Camillo learns that Peppone is about to promote the building of a communal house on the place of an old, derelict church, and that spurns the old flame. They descend from Rome onto quiet Brescello, and they will agitate their faithful hosts, christians against communists, using all devious ways. Even Christ makes a cameo appearance, when things are going a trifle too far. Written by Artemis-9

User Reviews

The Monsignore and the senator.
2 May 2020 | by zutterjp48See all my reviews

Don Camillo and Peppone are now in Rome, the first as Monsignore and the second as communist senator.But they are not very happy in Rome and they are looking everyone for a pretext to come back to Brescella.And they manage to come back and follow their rivalry in the little village of the Po valley. I have the feeling that this film doesn't show anything very new except the incident of Gisella and her husband. So this film is not as convincing that "Don Camillo" and "Le retour de De Don Camillo" !!
