Totò faces off against some Italian champions of laughter, in a lively and surreal bout where no one wins by knockout
More than a film, it is a ring inside of which Totò faces off against a series of heavyweight champions of laughter: Macario, Nino Taranto, Aldo Fabrizi and, for the last time in his career, Peppino De Filippo, his accomplice in so many adventures. If you’re looking for a well-constructed plot, you’ve come to the wrong place: the film is a stream of lively and often surreal sketches, providing us with the chance to enjoy the different styles of some of Italian comedy’s greatest actors. One thing is for sure, no one will win by knockout.
A very busy day in the life of Detective Antonio Saracino, starting from the moment he discovers that someone has stolen his car. Then, in the course of his professional duties, he will come up against a string of bewildering characters. At least, in the end, he will get his car back.
