| Greatly entertaining comedy !
Another fabel/comedy of the dangers for the poor Italian man who dares to rise up in society and challenge the high and mighty.This film is made in a more comical but realistic vein, and is well filmed.Alberto Sordi's acting is superb, and there is not a boring moment in the film ! This is a typical Italian neo realistic comedy, which was in such peak form in the late 1950's and early 1960's.Rarely, do Italians make such entertaining films nowadays,(with the exception of Pieracchioni and further back in time , Carlo Verdoni). This time Alberto plays the part of a newspaper vendor who dreams about sociliazing with the high society...but his dreams become reality when he befriends a nobleman fallen on hard times, who teaches him about manners and social mores when hanging around with nobles and super rich ! The results are definitely not up to expectations...but Alberto still manages to sociliaze with the jet set ....with disastrous and hilarious results ! Until he understands its better to marry a girl from his own modest background and 'keep to his stations', then run after crazy, jet setting, educated and polished people in which he stands out like a raw thumb !

The preformance of Vittorio de Sica(plays the part of poor nobleman) is as usual superb, and of course Alberto Sordi never disappoints ! A 8 vote.
