Amici miei (1975) AKA My Friends


Necchi (a bar owner), Perozzi (a journalist), Melandri (an architect) and Mascetti (a broken nobleman) live in Florence. They have been friends since their youngest years and spend every free moment together organizing complex and terrible jokes to all the people they meet, or just wandering around Tuscany. One of these crazy trips ends up in the hospital run by military-like Professor Sassaroli. Melandri falls in love with his wife, and steals her from the husband, much to the delight of Sassaroli himself. The relationship won’t last but the Professor becomes the fifth member of the team of friends, and jokes get even more complicated and powerful.

    My father told me about this fun old italian movie with four friends he once saw, I gave up on ever seeing it years ago and then I found it here in the frontpage, this website is gold.

    The correct title would be “Amici miei”, not “Amici mei”.
