I reccomend it to anyone who appreciates a good comedy. I do so cause it's the best I've seen and I've seen em all.
NOTE: In this film Toto plays Dante the retired burglar.
As a shocked Italian media reported, "Welcome to Collinwood" is nothing more than a remake of this remarkable film. As is so often the case, the original far surpasses the remake.
#1 The actors play characters from all over Italy, yet almost none of them gets to play a character with an accent from the actor's own part of the country!
#2 Can you guess which of the principal actors was, in fact, a barista in the bar where the director used to go for his coffee?
