Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
The two lead actors have little chance to overcome the stereotyped dialogue and action in this superficial tale about Emanuele (Johnny Dorelli) a free-wheeling, wealthy businessman fleeing from the law, and Gino (Paolo Villaggio) a poor, doltish cabbie driving him all over Europe. Emanuele has a suitcase full of documents that could convict several well-placed people of serious crimes if the papers were made public. He keeps them as he runs away from the police and tries to disguise himself as a female -- his "sister" -- who Gino romances. The ending is supposed to come as a surprise, but not many viewers are as blind as Gino, and both gender and fate are fairly obvious here.
