Il Piccolo diavolo (The Little Devil) Reviews
October 26, 2014
I saw this movie one evening in 1993 while living in Rio de Janeiro. I turned on the TV and was expecting something in Portuguese and was surprised when I heard English and saw Walter Matthau and an Italian I had never seen before. I started laughing out loud almost immediately at this ridiculous comedy, and spent the rest of the movie on the verge of tears. I love movies, and this is hands down the funniest movie I have ever seen. This movie is so funny in fact, I have regularly combed the internet for the last 20 years to learn as much as I can about it, and acquire a copy. While I did locate and purchase a copy on blu-ray, it is a regional copy and can't be played on my DVD player, plus, I don't speak Italian. Bummer. Rather than leave a long diatribe about how great this movie is, I will simply recommend, that if you find yourself in Europe or Australia, find it and watch it. There is an English version, and it was not dubbed, I saw it, it's real. As for myself, I will likely spend the next 20 years or more attempting to locate an English copy myself, one on blu-ray, and a digital copy if I can get it.
