Another Italian film to please yourself with
21 July 2004 | by ramna251See all my reviews

I am writing this note, because I found the title of this film 4 years after seeing this movie.

I saw this film when it opened in cinemas in Italy in 1999. As usual on a boring Friday night with friends drinks and nothing much to do.

Carlo Viti a very ardent fan of European films, suggested this film and Sala Reposi in Torino played host.

The movie a well made piece of Italian film, and symbolizes the average Italian and his films and his needs very brilliantly.

A very nice comedy especially Paulo and Luca. The switching between 2 wives and the pains of 2 families and finally when the 2 wives get to know each other ... the hilarious italian way of showing life on a screen is very evident.

In all, this is a film for you to watch if you like Italy, Italians, they unique culture and everything Italian !!!!!!

Go ahead and have a good Friday night with friends.
