Don Camillo is now a bishop, Peppone is now a senator, but their rivalry is as fierce as when they were just a village priest, and a village administrator. Don Camillo learns that Peppone is about to promote the building of a communal house on the place of an old, derelict church, and that spurns the old flame. They descend from Rome onto quiet Brescello, and they will agitate their faithful hosts, christians against communists, using all devious ways. Even Christ makes a cameo appearance, when things are going a trifle too far.Written by
In this one, both Don Camillo and Peppone are in Rome. One is monsignore, the other a communist senator. But they're reunited in their little countryside village by a controversy over the construction of an apartment complex. Slightly better than La Grande bagarre de Don Camillo (1955), but not as convincing as the first two in the series.
Out of 100, I give it 77. That's good for **½ out of **** stars.
Seen at home, in Toronto, on September 22th, 2002.
