5 April 2014 | by bgfraSee all my reviews

One of the best pieces of the Italian cinema with dialogues written by Pasolini who was a fantastic poet, and somebody is so ignorant to define this a bad movie ? Well I understand that it is not easy if you don't know Italian, but the cast is really very famous, going from Toto (a comic that was also a real Italian prince) to Franco Franchi, Ciccio Ingrassia, Davoli, Modugno, the poetic idea that stands behind this "remake" of the Otello that has a very philosophic interpretation of life (finally I can't explain if you are so dumb not to understand it), and that'all , I finally finished my ten lines, MA VAFFANCULO VERAMENTE, VA !
