From Altomare to Gran Gaspar
6 October 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

I don't understand why the critics gives bad reviews to the second episode. When I see my childhood friends to have some beers we always remember the Johnny Dorelli's performance together with the late Paola Borboni in which she admitted to be a witch. The magician is hilarious even when he tries to bribe innocent farmers whose son Bastiano eager to "rompe-lu-culo" (beat your ass in crude words), promising them pouring rain in a hot sunny day.

Anyway surely the first episode is the better one; I enjoy the relationship between the father and the estranged son-in-law, a slacker who later joins a peace&love commune. It displays the classic south Italian man, who is always afraid of bad luck.
