Written by Francesco Capussela. This Italian film is a very funny political satire. Directed by a comic duo well known in Italy, it is set in a coastal small town in Sicily.
As the movie starts, its corrupt mayor is voted out of office, being replaced by a younger guy, who is a very honest professor. Because people are used to the corrupt old ways, when the new mayor starts trying to clean house like, for instance, demanding people pay traffic fines he will soon face the opposition of the village including the local priest, and eventually, even some of his own family who will start demanding the old mayor returns.
The movie is very funny and it allows one to understand why people sometime prefer a corrupt political system if they believe they can benefit from it.
