Not every movie is made to become legendary and this is definitely one of them, so don't expect anything outstanding from this title. However, things are made for a purpose and "il bianco, il nero, il giallo" fully reaches its own. It's in fact a light hearted comedy with some puns and surrealism that you want to watch with your children on an ordinary quiet evening (eg. nobody ever gets hurt and the happy ending is served).
The novelty of the movie is represented by the exaggerated nonsensical samurai portray, brilliantly played by Milian who is the real star in here (and so much at ease!). Some great moments are the spit in the eye which is probably the best spit I've seen (it kept me laughing for a week at least!) and the identification of the pony Shimbè.
The movie has a feel good attitude all the time and some wanna-be morality is displayed, quite similarly to They call me Trinity. Noticeably, Sakura and Blanc the Blanc fulfil their dreams, while Black Jack retires after being prized, and the Indians are saved.
Good vibes have the power to take a bit of your soul and this movie does just that. I recommend to watch it without great expectations and to relax your mind.
