Some excellent actors, a fine director made this movie a must. In the middle of the Second World War, Mr. Bragaglia still knew how to address a message of his positive thought. The movie develops on a misunderstanding: False wedding certificates, broken couples and rural landscapes are the scene where a nice plot moves, until the final surprise. Here the world renowned glory of Eduardo De Filippo reveals the why of this strange case of wrong certificates and signatures: the revenge of a clerk against the cruelty of bureaucracy. The message is: today we are numbers and nothing more than this. If we die or if we get married, if we are 5 or 65 years old that is true only, if it stays on a registry. If the registry's wrong our same lives are wrong, thus we simply get lost, because the documents themselves stole our own life. Pirandello's and Kafka's echoes are slightly present in this joyful movie.
