Very funny, but unfortunately untranslatable
20 July 2008 | by garfieldthecatSee all my reviews

Very funny Neapolitan comedy. The plot is witty and original, and the trio Salemme, Casagrande and Buccirosso is at its best. The comedy's only limitation is that it all revolves around the city of Naples (the largest city in Southern Italy and the 3rd in the country): its dialect, its traditions, its sense of humour. Most of the jokes would be hard to grasp for Italians from other parts of the country, let alone for foreigners. In other words, if you don't find this funny, please try to understand that most of the lines are untranslatable: most jokes seem indeed stupid and make little sense when translated into English, but let me assure you they are quite witty in the original version.
