A so called: Smooth-funny-original comedy
7 August 2006 | by tomasdelaraSee all my reviews

Indeed I may say this is a worthwhile comedy.

The Dialogs are great, and you will feel like traveling around the Tuscany, beautiful and sunny region.

If you like Mario Monicelli's work, certainly, you will like this one, but don't expect a 10 out of 10 movie, as For Love and Gold, (1966).

There are two interesting considerations to be made about this movie:

1st one is that it makes you laugh, and wonder, about a post-war country, and it's miseries.

2nd one is that in the middle of the poverty, and wretchedness, that is widely shown, there is a man, the pugilist trainer, that believes in it's success and is capable of compelling others to fight (literally), for food, and that surviving is better than living.

Only if you watch this movie, you will understand, what I am saying !
