sorry for the mistakes
Pierino Against All
Farts, dirty jokes, crap, jokes that were already old in 1981, make
this film one of the ugliest things ever produced. Don’t mind.
Because at the same time they make "Pierino Against All" in 1981 one of
the best hits of the year. So much so that it generates sequels and
apocrypha, so much to "kill" Alvaro Vitali who can no longer shake off
the character. Because if you say Alvaro Vitali to a person who doesn't
follow cinema very much, he will surely reply "Ah, Pierino".
Vitali, whose curriculum vitae I won't remind you (we all know it,
don't we?), at the time was forced to forgo important 'cachets' because
he was so busy making films inspired by the famous joke child.
Handling it all behind the camera was Marino Girolami, who also wrote
the screenplay, if you can call it that, with Gianfranco Clerici and
Vincenzo Mannino. In reality, the three do nothing more than make
already well-known jokes, so much so that one could watch the film from
any point without losing the thread. The glue of it all is of course
Pierino, a child (Vitali was in his thirties) who gets up to all sorts
However, there are also positive things, or rather, the right ideas in
the right places, because Girolami and his associates cleverly put an
infinite number of character actors around Vitali who were already
well-known and appreciated by the public and who do their job very
well, with the addition of Cristina Moffa, who would later become the
unsuccessful answer to Carrà in the 1980s, but the star of a
There is also, and could not be, the beautiful, i.e. the substitute
teacher, played by Michela Miti, another actress who entered the
imagination for this role. Unlike the sexy comedy films, however,
Michela Miti strips very little, just a few seconds from the back and
shows just a few sexy cleavages besides the garter belt, which any
good-looking substitute teacher has worn. Fair enough, no?
"Pierino Against All" is basically this, a long carousel of familiar
faces combined with turpiloquy and jokes. A film that you can watch
from start to finish and whose tune enters your ears as much as the
protagonist's catchphrases. A full-blown scult. With whistle or without.
