Il marchese del Grillo

1981 - Comedy

Marquis del Grillo is a good-natured, smart, womanizing man who is always making up stories and organizing pranks. To escape boredom, the Marchese del Grillo often mixes with the people, frequenting dive bars and taverns, and at the very end of one of these evenings he finds a drunkard, a certain Gasperino, a coalman by profession, who is his perfect double. Driven by a taste for mockery, Onofrio picks him up and takes him home; here he will put on such a brilliant farce that poor Gasperino will pass for the Marchese del Grillo even in the eyes of his own relatives.
