[English]

A group of incapable thieves get the tip off about a safe robbery at a pawn shop. They are trained by a retired safe breaker (Totò). But, instead of getting into the bank’s safety room, where the money is, they find themselves in a kitchen of the apartment next door. They get over it by eating pasta with chickpeas. This film has been regarded as Monicelli’s best film and also the best Italian comedy for a long time.

 

[Bahasa Indonesia]

Sekelompok pencuri amatir dan bodoh hampir berhasil melakukan gebrakan setelah menuntut ilmu pada Sang Ahli Bongkar yang sudah pensiun (Totò). Bukannya dinding brankas yang mereka tembus, melainkan hanyalah dinding dapur sebuah apartemen. Secara kebetulan, di sana sudah tersaji sepiring pasta dan kacang yang lalu mereka makan. Film ini dianggap sebagai film terbaik Monicelli, bahkan menjadi film komedi Italia terbaik sepanjang masa.

 

[Italiano]

Una banda di ladri totalmente incapaci, riesce ad avere la soffiata di un colpo sicuro al monte di pietà. Vanno a lezione da uno scassinatore in pensione (Totò), ma finiranno anziché nella stanza della cassaforte, nella cucina dell’appartamento adiacente, dove si consoleranno con un piatto di pasta e ceci. Ritenuto il miglior film di Monicelli nonché la migliore commedia all’italiana di sempre.

Un bel giorno però, scopre all’ippodromo di Montecatini un cavallo brocco identico a un campione di Tor di Valle.
