Coffee service in train
21 December 2003 | by pnapo2See all my reviews

Manfredi stars in this top-notch Italian comedy about a charming flim-flam man's attempts to aid his ailing son, outwitting the dim-witted police in the process. A lovable, compassionate portrait by Italy's most inventive comedy director, Nanni Loy.

My vote: 9/10
