Storyline

New year's eve at "The Islands" condos. An aging countess's party is crashed by the soccer team from her gigolo's town. While dressing for a dinner party, the wealthy Guilia discovers her husband's affair with her best friend and vows revenge. Next door, a family prepares their vintage Dodge for a drive through the streets. A call girl ties up a lawyer while, unbeknownst to him, three men await the right moment to break into his office. Across the hall, a woman downs pills in a lonely suicide attempt. Two young men hide out in a bedroom smoking dope; one of them has some dynamite. As midnight approaches, each group draws closer to grotesque tragedy. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

L'ereditá Risi
22 December 2003 | by EdgarSTSee all my reviews

Dino Risi has been acknowledged as the man who most contributed to the creation of the cinematic comedy "all'italiana". His son Marco goes beyond any recognition of the traditional Italian comedy in this tale of an apocalyptic New Year's eve, where the goings get so, so out of hand that maybe your jaw will drop, or maybe not but it's still a wild and crazy party. Max Mazzotta, the actor who plays the leading character (if there is one), also appears in Renato de Maria's "Paz!", and is responsible for most of the jokes. I wasn't even looking to watch these two films, but after I did, I will look forward for future Italian movies on cable television, by different and new directors.
