After being premiered in a long version running 163 minutes, the film bombed spectacularly at the box office and was quickly re-cut by the producers and re-released in a shorter 125 minutes version against the wishes of director/star Adriano Celentano, who sued and asked that the film be withdrawn from theaters. All TV versions feature the shorter cut. See more »
Every movie is a self-celebration of the director and of the actors... but we could enjoying while seeing it!
This movie is interesting for both plan and soundtrack. The plan of the movie is perhaps awkward, but original and involving. Some scenes are a bit apocalyptic, and in my opinion this is a precursory movie. The cast is plenty of very good (even if not so well-known) actors.
Like the other all-Celentano movie (Yuppy Du), Joan Lui is full of crudely realistic scenes, not intended for an audience of young people, but the concepts of the movie are enough to stimulate the spectators to think.
