L'Imperatore Di Capri Details


Italian film comedian [[Performer~P114436~Toto~totò]] was usually better than his material. L'Imperator di Capri is one of a handful of films that is truly worthy of [[Performer~P114436~Toto~totò]]'s farcical skills. The plot is a familiar one for the star, involving mistaken identity, close shaves, and a dalliance with a beautiful woman. Forced to pose as a visiting Indian prince, [[Performer~P114436~Toto~totò]] does his best to carry off the deception while visiting the island of Capri. This time, he must contend with the amorous advances of two well-proportioned ladies, played by [[Performer~P63077~Yvonne Sanson~yvonnesanson]] and [[Performer~P48573~Marisa Merlini~marisamerlini]]. Writer/director [[Performer~P85612~Luigi Comencini~luigicomencini]] manages to extract the best of [[Performer~P114436~Toto~totò]] and his idyllic surroundings in this frantically funny film. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
