Toto, Fabrizi, and Today's Youth

A delightful and astute Italian farce (1960) about two prospective in-laws whose feud almost wrecks their children's impending marriage. Toto, a suave nouveau riche bakery owner, is neatly counterpointed by the rotund Aldo Fabrizi (Open City), a government functionary who's timid at work but domineering at home, and their verbal jousting and slapstick encounters are hilarious. Director Mario Mattoli takes a few jabs at government corruption and middle-class values, vividly evoking a late-50s Rome where those who survived the war now have to contend with their rebellious kids. 87 min.
