This film is about a Neapolitan who moves to Florence. "Emigrant?" everyone asks him. "No, tourist. Everywhere we Neapolitans go, people ask if we are emigrants. Neapolitans travel also." The man in this lunatic comedy, and also its director, is Massimo Troisi who seems like a combination of Chico Marx, Totò, and Woody Allen on Dexedrine. He is as apt a comedian as a performer and his inspired nonsense can send an attuned audience (I suspect his comedy doesn't travel well) into convulsions of laughter. Here is a man who doesn't want to start a new life from zero or from scratch but from three. After all each of us has had two experiences in life that weren't that bad! Massimo Troisi is known to American audiences as the hero of "Il Postino". The actor died soon after completing work on that film.

Gaetano, a young Neapolitan, decides to leave home, work and friends, to look for other moments of life and meet other people. He goes to Florence, to his aunt's home. In a clinic, where he goes by chance, he meets Martha and falls in love with her. After a series of funny situations (an old friend from the relentless chatter coming from Naples and the mature aunt and her elderly lover, a young American priest who wants to involve him in his visits to evangelical force, the encounter with Riccardino, a young man frustrated by an oppressive mother and the father waiting for the miracle of re-growth of an amputated hand, etc.) Gaetano decides to stay in Florence and to act as father to Martha's incoming son, even if the girl does not want to disclose the exact name of the father.—Ruben Oliveira

The movie is built around Troisi's talent (and here and there this is noticeable) but some scenes ought to the history of italian comedy and have entered into common language. Even if it's 40 years old - another historical period, another reality - its vis comica is still fresh!
Troisi gives to us a faithful portrait of the condition of the youth
Even if it's 20 years old, I think this film is still very relevant, because we remind ourselves in a portrait that depicts the previous generation.
The less of prospects and strong ideals is very topical for this generation too. So the humor of Troisi is only a thin veil that hides a great bitterness.
Troisi was one of the best authors of Italy.
