In Italian with English subtitles.

Also known as The Passionate Thief, this fast-paced crime comedy stars Anna Magnani as the fly in the ointment for a pair of disreputable types. Pickpockets Toto and Ben Gazzara don't want Magnani around while they ply their trade, but she manages to foul up their plans by falling in love with their "pigeon", American tourist Fred Clark. Gazzara briefly rids himself of Magnani by pinning a robbery rap on her. Upon her release from jail, she is reunited with Toto, who has loved her all along. Since it is established early on that Magnani is a movie extra and Toto an out-of-work actor, Risate di Giola gets away with a few jibes at the Italian film industry.

Un Gran Piacere! April 3, 2019
Reviewer: Kent Sargent from New York, NY United States  
'Risate' di Mario Monicelli, is such a wonderful film that takes you from joy and laughter, to a tear now and then, and back to the pleasure of watching Italian cinema. Magnani's performance is, as you would think, absolutely marvelous.  You know her dramatic performances, but if you haven't seen her in a comedy you MUST watch this film!
