Based on Paolo Villaggio's books "Fantozzi" and "Il secondo, tragico Fantozzi", which are popular in Italy, this film tells the story of an unfortunate accountant's life over the course of one year, shown in a variety of sketches, segments and provocative sequences making Fantozzi a very unlucky person indeed.Written by
Stefano "SWEEVO" Pavone
It's true, Fantozzi is such a cult in Italy that unless you've actually watched at least one movie you're going to miss most jokes by your fellow Italian as at least three out of ten are related to a fantozzi movie somehow:) if you're unlucky or clumsy you are 'fantozzi' and people can pretend to be fantozzi's boss: 'fantozzi, is it you'? One of fantozzi's most popular answers (usually to his boss's magnanimous decision to move him to the basement and increase his shifts from 5 to 8) is to say: "Thank you you are so human" so every time anybody says something evil or mean you can reply jokingly and say 'you're so human':) also his name is hilariously and constantly misspelled 'fantocci' 'bambocci' etc.
but unless you know the fantozzi quotes you won't get the gist of it and you'll be lost to most other who watched the movie(s) lots of times..
