Brilliant!!
15 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

What a shame that this movie never made it to the public This poor engineer Colombo is working in an Italian company where only English is allowed (people get fired if they speak Italian ;-) His company sends him to South America where they normally "loose" their employee in a town only populated with women. Jean Rochefort plays 'Cri Cri' who really have managed to carve himself a 'home' being the only man around The (anti)hero has to go trough all kind of obstacles (not always unpleasant ones) before finally solving the problem with the missing men The movie is funny in Maurizio Nichettis usual dry manner and I simply LOVE the 'happy' end where everybody gets exactly what they deserve ;-) If you see this movie around please go and take a look, it is really worth it
