This music-filled romp from the Manetti Bros. earned a Golden Lion nomination at the Venice Film Festival. Ciro (Giampaolo Morelli) is among the most feared men in Naples, one of two killers at the service of crime boss Don Vincenzo (Carlo Buccirosso), “the King of Fish.” One night a young nurse, Fatima (Serena Rossi), finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time and sees too much; Ciro is given the job of getting rid of her. But when the two end up face to face, they recognize each other as childhood sweethearts.

When Paco (Alessandro Roja) can’t find work as a pianist, he gets a low-level job on the police force - and is soon reassigned to undercover work as a keyboardist in a band set to play at the wedding of a crime boss’s daughter. The Manetti brothers’ hilarious homage to ’70s cop films and Naples’ neomelodico singers earned four Nastro d'Argento awards, including Best Comedy. In Italian with English subtitles.
