Big Deal on Madonna Street

I soliti ignoti

Instrueret af Mario Monicelli
Italien, 1958
Komedie, Krimi


An all-star cast and jazzy score highlight this charming comedy, a deft satire of classic caper films like Rififi. Big Deal on Madonna Street hilariously details the plight of a sad-sack group of bumbling thieves and their desperate attempts to pull off the perfect heist.

The film’s climax is as meticulously staged and almost as long as the legendary half-hour heist sequence in Rififi, but replaces the Frenchmen’s laconic professionalism with the Italians’ noisy ineptitude. The use of arch, silent movie-style intertitles to further the narrative adds to the apparent air of mockery.

The premise couldn’t be simpler (a group of low-class thieves does everything wrong), but the film turns it into a very rich series of observations. The nature of Monicelli’s comedy is to present the seemingly nonsensical yet instantly recognizable relationships between people, each other, and the society they call home.

The plentiful lessons and solutions exhibited by the film would of course take closer study than this admittedly vague and general epistle, but what is clear on a revelatory re-viewing… was an uncompromising creativity that clearly didn’t seek solutions to the problems of story or of filmmaking but rather took up with its hero and subject and went with it, using its allegiance as a fund for inspiration and energy. The filmmaking doesn’t follow the subject: it is one with the subject.
