20 July 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

...in the clothes of a truck drivers story. good dialogues. good performances. and a not real convincing plot. but nice for individual stories, for the fight scene, for humor and for the well known recipe , used in decent manner. secrets, misteries - many predictable, Belmondo and Ventura and the American flavour of a Verneuil film.
