| Great (and underrated) movie
I have to write this review, as the film's current rating (5.9) is far too low. Already the book was good fun, including some deeper moments, especially when the main protagonist Antonio Marcipane tells about his arrival and first years as an immigrant ("Gastarbeiter") in Germany. The director of the film does a terrific job in combining humorous elements with these more difficult parts of Antonio's character, without becoming too melodramatic. The film is shot in Southern Italy with beautiful, yet realistic images. Camera and cutting is imaginative, the casting convincing (Lino Banfi is a well-known and successful Italian actor). I can only speculate that the low ratings were given by people expecting a pure, Hollywood-type slapstick comedy. Fortunately, the movie is so much more than that. Go see it!

P.S: Being a German married to an Italian wife, we both felt remembered Italo-German experiences while watching the movie...
