A very good comedy!
emilian7727 June 2000
This "war-comedy" is a really good one, even if little known. Featuring the unusual couple Antonio De Curtis-Walter Pidgeon, this is also a very funny movie, where the cleverness of Pidgeon reveals itself in the attempt to follow the classic "Totò"'s improvisation skill. Nino Taranto is as good as usual, and I have to signal that there is also an amusing scene involving Roland Bartrop and Totò, but I'm not sure if it was included in the reduced US version (I have seen only the full Italian version).

story from war
Vincentiu3 July 2014
splendid comedy, seductive at whole, it is more than a war movie. because it represents a wise example of measure about a delicate subject. the secret is the remarkable cast and use, in smart manner of classic clichés. and the real virtue is exactly the status of first step on a way to present the war in a fresh manner. key - great dialog between Walter Pidgeon and Toto.than - the game of stereotypes.and not the last, slices of naivety, used with admirable art. a comedy about a tragic event with powerful Italian flavor, with a precise script and the testimony for many films after it - Mediterraneo is the obvious example.

the clash
Kirpianuscus5 May 2017
the clash between different mentalities. naive, seductive, adorable. first, of course, for the performance of Toto. than, for the wise way to present the modern war in a...Medieval knight. and for the remember of basic moral virtues. in fresh manner. in gentle way. because, in essence, it is a film about people. only about people. ironic, wise, honest, almost poetic. and this is the great virtue of a film who remains great against the passing time as a moral lesson and noble message about the real important things.
