One of the smartest italian comedies.
10 September 2019 | by davidescarciello-68641See all my reviews

"La Matassa" is not just an ordinary movie: you can perfectly see the genius behind this marvelous and funny story. The perfect duo Ficarra & Picone shows passionately the love for Sicily and express every single problem of italian society. From the feud created over money, the immigration, mafia, political falsehood, etc... This is from the point of view of two opposite cousins, but in reality they are the same: a friendship that comes back after 30 years with some very stirring scenes but everything mixed with some pure and smart italians gags. There is everything you want in this movie: funny scenes, stirring scenes, good directing, marvelous editing, united together with one of the best soundtrack of this century of italian movies. Enjoy this incredible comedy!
