Critics reviews

It’s strangely funny at times, though such dark humor is to be expected from one of the masters of the Commedia all’italiana genre… Most importantly, however, is that the film’s straightforward, pro-labor message isn’t hampered by didacticism. It’s as expressive as it is informative, and its reluctant modernity is challenged only by its clever archaism.
