Storyline

In the Eighteenth Century, the "Traveling Company of Scenic Arts" composed of Tyrant, Lady Leonarde, Serafina, Isabella, Leandre, Zerbina, Matamore and Pulcinella gets lost while traveling to Paris in bad weather. They see a castle and ask the servant Pietro if they can spend the night. They soon learn that the destroyed castle belongs to the ruined nobleman Jean Luc Henry Camille, the Baron of Sigognac. Pietro asks the company to take Sigognac with them to Paris as King Luis XIII's father was saved by the baron's father, Henrique de Navarra, and Luis XIII would certainly reward Sigognac in gratitude. He also secretly gives one hundred gold coins to Pulcinella to serve Sigognac. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

One of films in which every aspect gives a special state. From performances to the inspired use of story, from nostalgia to the refreshing humor, from the dialogues to the love story. A homage to theater and a great adaptation of a fascinating novel. And, sure, Massimo Troisi .
