Storyline

Un manipolo di reclute si prepara ad una guerra di cui nessuno conosce gli scopi nè il motivo. Il comandante del campo è un generale che gioca con un pupazzo di Marx e vive in un palazzo lussuoso che dall'esterno sembra una baracca. Ai suoi ordini un capitano che vive vestito da arabo in una tenda ed un sergente addetto all'addestramento che non brilla per intelligenza. L'addestramento continua fra incidenti vari e grotteschi finchè arriva l'ordine di partire per il fronte. E poi? Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Surreal War Comedy
3 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

You may have always thought that war comedies do not get any more surreal and farcical than, say, M.A.S.H., 1941, Duck Soup, or Dr. Strangelove. Well, this one does - by a country mile.

That makes it certainly stand out, but it also makes it a rather acquired taste. The film betrays its comic-strip origins by not pursuing a lengthy plot but rather focusing on a flood of farcical comedy elements. The humour is often crude and shallow, but occasionally it goes deeper and hits harder. The easily offended should certainly stay away.
