This 1972 film by Lina Wertmuller (Seven Beauties, Swept Away) is a wild farce of the Sicilian milieu. Mimi (who is a man) is forced to leave his hometown when he can no longer get work as a result of voting against the local strong arms in a "secret" ballot. In the big city he finds work, but also finds that life there is very much as corrupt as it was at home. He falls in love and has a child by his lover, and when forced to take a job in his hometown again, he must hide his lover and their son from his wife. When he is too tired to please his wife in bed after making love all day to his lover, she becomes pregnant by another man, setting off a chain of events that ultimately lead to a public revenge scene that possibly has no rival. What's even more amazing is that the film manages to portray a complex protagonist in a searing comedy. A must-see, especially if you'd like a lighter view of the same world portrayed in The Godfather. --James McGrath

This flick as good as Romanzo popolare (1974) . One of the best Italian film ever! If u be so kind to help me find this marvel,I will be most....I know Ornella Muti there barely sixteen,but Ugo Tognazzi about 50;) What a wonderful time was than,too bad I was born in 90's!
It showed the typical love Italian style, mixed with the unfortunate but ever so present, mafia influence, and the poor and misguided Italian southerner.
