When the Chinese Ambassador is visiting the restaurant, kids flap flags of the Republic of China (Taiwan). Actually, Italy had broken relations with Taipei to recognize People's Republic of China in 1970, well before this movie was filmed. See more »

perhaps the best of the Tomas Milian/ Er Monnezza saga !
14 April 2006 | by m-ravazzinSee all my reviews

Personally I find this film the best one among the whole saga of the Tomas Milian/ Er Monnezza saga . Tomas Milian plays the double role of the police commissary Nico Giraldi, formerly a thief who decided to join the "good ones" enlisting in the police, without loosing his attitude of rude man of the periphery , with a terrific language in pure roman dialect, and the Chinese Chin Chun Chao. All the series is a real cult in Italy,particularly in Rome, where - if you may have noticed - the posters of those films can be purchased as souvenirs of Rome in Piazza Navona or close to the Fontana di Trevi.. A lot of people know - even now, , 25 years later - perfectly a lot of dialogues, even young people, which were unborn by the time the movie was turned. Beside Milian, a great Bombolo ,this time with Enzo Cannavale, the Neapolitan actor who used to be his partner in some theater pieces of the time ( by the way, Bombolo used to sell umbrellas on a Ape Piaggio, when he was " discovered" and became a cinema star , of course of trash cinema). If you understand at least a bit of Italian,this film is an experience you should try : it will also help you a lot learning the language, of course the swore words!
