You cannot laugh too much and some of the situations are childish but there is a particular atmosphere that is the same of the Bertolucci's movie and also there is a funeric mood that is the RIGHT side of "ultimo tango".

Everybody had forgot this part only to remember the act with Brando and Schneider. In "Zagarol" is relatively funny, with Franco told his story to an inspirate actress, the great Franca Valeri. As is said on the Morandini' dictionary of cinema "Franco Franchi in excelsis". Ars longa....
