Now back in Milan, Alberto has accepted to manage a program for efficiency improvement in the Italian Post. He devotes all his time and energy to this noble task and neglects his wife Silvia, which of course annoys her beyond limits. Things don't go much better in Castellabate where it is rather Maria, Matta's wife, who gets on his nerves by always blaming him for his lack of ambition. One day, due to a misunderstanding, Mattia is transferred to... Milan. And on whose doorstep does he land? Alberto's, of course!Written by
Only a few sequels can stick the great success of the first movie nowadays. Benvenuti al Nord is not so bad but there is nothing new here. I saw many jokes and typical situations of the Italian north in Milan. Some original scenes rounded this second part up. I think in the last one there were also some ridiculous scenes but these didn't slow down the dynamic. As an Italian I understood the funny dialogs in dialect so that I spent a real entertaining time. It's much more enjoyable if you see it in the origin language version with subtitles. But I cannot imagine that there would be ever a third part. I suppose the ideas are sold out for the next one. Thumbs up for Alessandro Siani and Claudio Bisio that delivered for a second time a very convincing and respectable performance. 4 out 10.
