The indestructible Bud Spencer and Terence Hill in one of their most-loved films
Rebellious missionaries in the name of justice and brotherhood, to the sound of epic punch-ups
Bud Spencer and Terence Hill don the vestments of missionaries without losing an ounce of their comic genius. As ever, they remain both madcap and laid-back, grumpy and big-hearted, crafty and delightfully naive. And, more importantly, the whole thing is regularly interrupted by epic punch-ups that teach severe lessons to whatever bad guys cross their paths. Porgi l’altra guancia is without doubt one of their most-loved films. Under their cassocks our heroes wear a lovingly rebellious attitude, which in the name of justice and brotherhood does not hesitate to step on the toes not just of the local bullies but also of the Church, when its behaviour is less than admirable. And so, when someone cries out “God save the Queen”, Bud Spencer can’t help but ask: “Why, is she sick?”
The year of our Lord 1890. With a mixture of cunning and punches, two missionary priests in the Antilles help the inhabitants of a village to defend themselves against an unscrupulous governor. However, even the Vatican will stick its nose into affairs.
