football mon amour
my favourite franco&ciccio movie, together with *il lungo, il corto e il gatto* by lucio fulci. franco is simply out of hand, playing the part of *K.K. the wizard*, a parody of helenio herrera, the famous football trainer that became well known in italy with the nickname of *H.H. the wizard*. ciccio engaged him to train his awful football team, but there's a problem: franco doesn't know anything about football, because he's a real wizard, one of those who look in the crystal sphere. so ciccio seems to have made a terrible mistake, but....well, with a wizard like franco, you can do everything! very funny and good direction by mariano laurenti. look out, there's karin schubert, too!
