Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
Dark humor and drama figure prominently in this comedy about two brothers and their attempts to keep their comatose mother (Emilia Della Rocca) alive. Cris (Luciano Manzalini) is a successful, portly businessman who likes chasing women while his rail-thin brother Ivano (Eraldo Turra) likes to drink and tries to stop trucks by raising an iron bar in road. With help from a device invented by Professor Perrier (Felice Farina), the brothers try to keep their mother alive in the basement. The Laurel and Hardy-like duo are known as the Rugerri Twins in their native Italy.
