Francesco Di Narnali is a world champion billiards Italian and American, with a particular talent for spectacular performances, in particular to be able to pit fifteen balls to the pool with a broom instead of a stick; hence the nickname "Mr. Quindicipalle".

One day, Francesco went to the cemetery by his father and, attempting to steal the flowers to the graves he meets a woman named Sissi, who turns out to be a prostitute. Francis, having told relatives that he knew a certain Margaret, for one million and five hundred thousand lire, invites her to lunch at her home, calling her by the name of Margaret.

Sissi alias Margaret then tries to get rid of Francis, but it so happens that they meet again just to one of the performances of Francis, and they begin dating. He, more and more in love, even dedicates a new blow to the specialty five pins: un'ottavina nine banks, which he calls "Ottavina Princess Sissi".

Francis continues to practice at the pool to take part in a major tournament, but ...

After the biggest Italian flop, nothing is changed for Nuti
13 October 1998 | by mauro-2See all my reviews

After the movie "Occhio Pinocchio", which will be remebered in the movie history as the most expensive Italian film and for its low incomes as the biggest Italian flop, Francesco Nuti comes back with this movie. This is his third movie where Nuti talks of pool, and the plot has always the same structure: the shy man meets the woman of his life. Feelings like jealousy, are badly expressed, and the feeling to remember when the end comes is only one: boring.
