Description
 
This is a region-free DVD-R without case or artwork.

In Italian with English subtitles.

The English title of this film is My Friends. The famed Italian film director Pietro Germi (his sharply observant and satirical films include The Immoralist, and Divorce Italian Style) began work on this comedy, but died before he could do more than write the screenplay. However, he lived long enough to choose Mario Monicelli as his successor. In the story, four friends keep their friendship alive and their Tuscan town lively by means of an endless series of practical jokes and pranks of various sorts. Perozzi (Philippe Noiret) works on the night desk of a newspaper, reporting on crime. Mascetti (Ugo Tognazzi), an aristocrat, has seen better days. They are joined in mischief by Melandri (Gastone Moschin) and Necci (Duilio DelPrete), an architect and a cafe-owner by profession respectively. When the town doctor (Adolfo Celi) manages to outwit the collective efforts of the four, he is soon invited to join their little club. The rhythms of life in a cheerful provincial town are effectively unveiled in this affectionate film.

One for all, and all for one. May 10, 2016
Reviewer: James from SE PA United States  
A group of jokester minded, middle-aged compatriots who should be thoroughly slapped, though, it was a lot of fun reaching that conclusion. The viewer will wait fifteen or so minutes into the film before the mischievousness of these four, ultimately five, delinquents begins to take full shape. Tognazzi's and Moschin/Celi's predicaments (separate from the group) are rich enough to have produced their own movies. Many guilty/embarrassed chuckles.
