Something (just something) about Totò

As I read in the previous comment this movie is just an "unfunny burlesque". Even we cannot say this is the best film of Totò it belongs to the category of movies of Totò, where he is in any case a perfect sample or better the last sample of "comici dell'Arte". Maybe this cannot be understood out of Italy, but the enormous skills of this Artist are all there. For instance his characterization of the fascist "gerarca" and the Lady Laudomia, and the so matching neapolitan nobleman, or the sketch of the surgery (incomparable!)coming directly from "Teatro di Rivista" (the Italian Tivoli Burlesque). An unforgettable critic of Italian characters! Sure we can find similar commercial movies in American and other countries cinematographies, maybe not always performed by Artists of the same caliber in improvisation of this , we can say , Italian Mask. Let's just take one of Totò's inventions inside this movies "Io lo mando a Ponza a Ponzare!" (I'm sending him "fungooing" )

Unfunny burlesque

Toto plays five siblings, each nutty as a fruitcake. This isn't a farce or a parody, it's a very unfunny burlesque, with no characterization and an almost non existent plot. Typical is a long scene where he plays a surgeon who can't find the patient's head, cuts the patient open and then tells him to find another surgeon to finish the job, etc. Humor literally on the level of stage burlesque. Toto merely has to mug shamelessly and deliver the nonsense dialogue as fast as possible. Most scenes are very long takes, shot head-on in mid- to long-shot. With a small cast (and only two shots with more than one Toto character on screen at the same time), this must have cost nothing to make. And it's worth about as much.
