Synopsis

One of the best-loved films featuring the misadventures of the accountant Fantozzi

A high concentration of comedy which was an instant hit with Italian audiences

The third film in the series featuring Paolo Villaggio’s unforgettable creation, a character indelibly inked into the collective  memory of Italian cinema-goers, back again to endure more suffering and misfortune with incredible tenacity. Fantozzi contro tutti is one of the best-loved films in the series, an almanac of gags that, generations later, people still remember word for word. Some episodes from the film have gained legendary status: the weight loss clinic and the scene with the meatballs, the furniture filled with loaves baked by Diego Abatantuno (and that “creeping suspicion”), the Cobram Cup cycling race with its crashes into an unfortunately located restaurant, the tragic boat trip with the Marquis Barambani…

Accountant Ugo Fantozzi has to deal with diets, bakers, performance-enhancing drugs and subversive sky-writing. As always, it’s a disaster.
