Audience Reviews for I Magliari

  • Nov 08, 2013
    "The Magliari" starts with Mario Balducci(Renato Salvatori) looking for something to eat in Hanover, West Germany, far away from his home of Tuscany, when he spots an Italian restaurant across the way. Even though he enjoys hearing his native tongue again, service is another matter, at least until Totonno(Alberto Sordi) intervenes on his behalf. In exchange, he lifts Mario's passport to get him out of trouble and Mario a night in jail which Totonno gets him out of in exchange for still being welcome at his favorite restaurant. And then Totonno demonstrates how he makes a living which is not exactly legal. "The Magliari" is a downbeat movie that subverts expectations even with its now familiar setup, starting with the scene with the widow which is played much more for painful disbelief than for laughs. This is a situation that Mario finds himself out of desperation for companionship and cash. The same might not be true for the other men in Totonno's crew, as it is possible that some are also wanted by the authorities in their home country. In any case, what the movie seems to be saying is that it might not matter since they all end up in the same place anyway.
