Like in many other Monicelli movies, the main theme of Amici miei is friendship, seen from a rather bitter point of view. It tells the story of four middle-aged friends in Florence who organize together idle pranks (called zingarate, "gypsy shenanigans") in a continuous attempt to prolong childhood during their adult life.

Steve Railsback gave a good performance on Ed Gein and it was interesting to see how the relationship with his mother went and it was also pretty neat to see some archival footage of when the real murders happened.

(de) wrote: Un film delirant plein d'humour noir qui nous entraine dans un univers completement surrealiste pour mieux faire ressortir l'absurdite du reel. Bertrand Blier a su creer une atmosphere en parfait accord avec son propos ; il nous emmene dans des lieux triviaux (un immeuble, la campagne, une station de RER...) auxquels il donne une dimension fantastique et angoissante qui les transfigure et les rend beaux.
(gb) wrote: The most overrated film I've ever seen. It's not bad, certainly watchable, but I will not bother watching it again. There's nothing memorable about it, not even the characters. I'm a film fan, not a sheep who nods in agreement with the so-called reputable film critics, so not affected by the Emperors New Clothes syndrome which many film critics have who think that have to rate this mediocre movie highly to get credibility,. I'm afraid to say that in my opinion the King is in the altogether as far as my rating of this film goes.
