Sabiendo que el director había fallecido hacía sólo un mes y lloviendo a mares como estaba el sábado,me propuse ver por primera vez esta que es ahora una joya de mi filmoteca.Actores en estado de gracia,como Vittorio Gassman,luchando sólo por escapar de ir a defender la patria..muy guapo además..un estafador Alberto Sordi con su gracia peculiar y una Silvana Mangano tan bella como fiera..de niña quería parecerme a ella y el mal genio no me falta,no..me ha impresionado gratamente el despliegue de extras y medios para retratar una guerra durísima en esas trincheras de espanto.Creo que es una de esas 100 peliculas que hay que ver antes de morir..yo con (C)sta ya cumplí.

Italians that never distinguished themselves in war, have made probably the best anti-war films. Much too down to earth and sophisticated to believe in war or take it seriously. The opposite can be seen in American WWII films

Maybe th best neorealistic film about the Italian WWI... A tragic film driven by an ironic view

A roman and a milanese rascals are enrolled against their will, to serve for their country in the first world war. After playing tricks on each other, a tight bond of friendship based on survival will unite them.
Mario Monicelli gives a quixotesque note on war, a tragic but also comical view of the people forced to fight for ideals they don't share; and what better interpreters to bring that to life than the magnificent couple Vittorio Gassman and Alberto Sordi, two often cynical but in the end righteous men whose only desire was to make their way out of the battle, to reach their respective dreams somewhere else.

La prima guerra mondiale raccontata da Monicelli tramite i volti di Alberto Sordi e Gassman. Poteva raccontare la storia mostrando gente che si spara, cade, muore. Invece prende due ragazzi che hanno di sicuro meglio da are che mettersi le divise, e ovviamente hanno paura! Quindi questi si ritrovano a inventarsi espedienti nuovi ogni d per sfuggire alla battaglia in prima persona... Monicelli racconta l'Italia divisa dai dialetti che si ritrova e si unisce nella guerra, mostra il coraggio anche di chi credeva di non averlo, e l'amore che ognuno di noi dovrebbe avere ancora, nonostante tutto, per il bel paese... che di momenti bui ne ha vissuti pi di adesso!

Monicell''s masterpiece is probably the best film about the First World War. Hilarious and harrowing, raw and poetic.
