Plot

One day he is discovered by a TV crew that, sniffing the scoop, film a report about him. From that moment, against his will, he gets sucked into civilization.

  • Reception

    Helped by the accurate Ettore Scola, it's one of those movies from the master of Italian comedies to re-discover absolutely. Exquisite, swinging, smart, this film appeared to be an hilarious mirror of some of the most pregnant clich├ęs of the occidental modernity. But it remains underrated and unknown, especially because there is no releases in DVD and Blu-ray.
