Silly, but a nice comedy
This film has the typical air of Italian action/gangster comedies from that period. I guess one needs to be a true fan of this style but then it is a perfectly charming and funny sort of comedy. The acting is not too important anyway but still it is reasonable and enjoyable. The cliches of black and white are wonderfully maintained in this movie as the good guys are clever and witty and the bad ones are bad and pretty dumb. I considered the "Shakespearian" dream of the "good" Mafioso a bit stupid but then a film like that seems in need of a few blunders. The costumes are great. All in all enjoyable.
