well told joke
19 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

Tonino is a clumsy Italian waiter working in the Netherlands who wants to be a photographer. He gets a shot at this when his boss, mr. Suède, wants to hire him to bring him the photographic evidence that his wife is cheating on him. The client will find out, however, that art cannot be forced.

Basically, this is one long joke (literally), and it could have been told in five minutes just as easily as in ten. But it is a good joke, and well told. The dialogue is this short's weak point--it grates seriously at times. Ton Kas as mr. Suède makes up for that though. The way he does not dare tell Tonino what his problem is, walks across the room so as to not face the young waiter, then yells at him 'she is hard to satisfy' [sexually], is very funny.
