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)...
