A mix of the musicarello genre and the Mario Camerini comedies of the 1930s
The songs of Caterina Caselli, the “Golden bob” of Italian pop music, in a fresh romantic comedy set in a department store
With the usual perfect timing, this musicarello captures the musical chart success of the moment and transforms it into a film. Caterina Caselli participated in the Sanremo Festival with the song Nessuno mi può giudicare, earning her the nickname “Golden bob” and blowing aside all competition in terms of record sales (the festival, however, was won by Gigliola Cinquetti and Domenico Modugno with the song Dio, come ti amo, which gave life to another film). Director Ettore Maria Fizzarrotti, an expert in the genre, knits together a romantic comedy around the title song, primarily set inside a department store: strangely enough, the film feels a little like a Mario Camerini comedy from the 1930s, and the youthful energy of the hit record remains somewhat in the background. If truth be told, the singer herself is also kept somewhat in the background, perhaps as she did not appear at ease in the role of the young blonde struggling for love. She is outshone by Laura Efrikian, an ever-reliable and ever-present actress of singing comedies in those years. However, Caselli has the chance to make amends, with wonderful performances of the title song and Perdono, another of her big hits, wearing a ridiculous nightgown. The comedy also hits just the right notes, especially thanks to the presence of Gino Bramieri, a lover of cars who has no idea how to drive.
A recently employed bellhop at a large department store falls in love with a shop assistant. Unfortunately, one of their superiors also has his eyes set on the girl and will not hesitate to lie and blackmail to get her.
