Movie Info

The famed Italian film director Pietro Germi (his sharply observant and satirical films include The Immoralist, and Divorce Italian Style) began work on this comedy, but died before he could do more than write the screenplay. However, he lived long enough to choose Mario Monicelli as his successor. In the story, four friends keep their friendship alive and their Tuscan town lively by means of an endless series of practical jokes and pranks of various sorts. Perozzi (Philippe Noiret) works on the night desk of a newspaper, reporting on crime. Mascetti (Ugo Tognazzi), an aristocrat, has seen better days. They are joined in mischief by Melandri (Gastone Moschin) and Necci (Duilio DelPrete), an architect and a cafe-owner by profession respectively. When the town doctor (Adolfo Celi) manages to outwit the collective efforts of the four, he is soon invited to join their little club. The rhythms of life in a cheerful provincial town are effectively unveiled in this zany and affectionate film. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Amici miei (My Friends)

Very few people I know, have ever seen this movie, I recommend, this history, is about five old guys that have a typical boring and regular life, and join the group to do the most idiotic and funny things that guaranteed fun, at least for each other I don't understand why the american cinema hasn't made a remake of this movie, even because some of the jokes are may not so applyable for this era, but thinking of this movie, I assure that should have some series, I would like to see this movie again, it's almost impossible to find, but if you are able to watch it, do so, this is a Italian movie, but the idea of this group is inspiring, oh how I would like to have such friends once I get older, to play the pranks as those old fellas suggest on this movie It will certainly inspire you too, this movie got all the best @rogerioaugusto
