Hilarious comedy
8 November 2005 | by singles00See all my reviews

"Caruso Paskoski di padre polacco" was Francesco Nuti's finest hour. I had the luck of living in Italy at the time of its release and, as demented as the film was, it was hilarious. It's a comedy, and it perfectly fulfils its job without ever being banal or over-simplistic so i don't quite see the point previously made about the film "not having a specific message". It's a tale of nymphomania, jealousy and quite intriguing is the little poke at the culture of self-importance of many a 'shrink' - not to mention the inevitable nod at the "matriarcal" texture of Italian society. The only shame is that "Caruso Paskoski" isn't available in any other language. Nevertheless Nuti's humour is quintessentially an Italian one, more so with its consistent relying on typically Tuscan expressions and Florentine accent which you would only appreciate in full if you're a fluent Italian speaker. Truly entertaining.
