Italian cult movie on the horse-races world
19 March 2000 | by giulio.caroSee all my reviews

You can watch "Febbre da cavallo" 100 times and you will still be looking forward to watching it again. You will immediately feel part of the horse-races world. You will start talking with a Roman accent. Probably you will even look for an hippodrome, go there and bet on a horse for the first time in your life. But, most important, you won't stop laughing thinking of the dialogues in the movie. You will never forget Proietti/Mandrake and Montesano/Er Pomata, and you will soon realize you're not the only one (just have a look on the web)...
