This comedy concerns identical twin brothers who have a very different way of looking at life. Filippo makes a living selling nude photographs and engaging in forgery and petty crimes, much to the consternation of his brother Mario, an honest law man employed by the government. Mario is driven crazy by Filippo, who eventually sleeps with Mario's wife and becomes a respected member of Parliament. Filippo excels, in spite of his sordid background, while the virtuous Mario loses everything and is unrewarded for his strong convictions of morality and law and order in this offbeat comedy.Vittorio Gassman stars in the double role of the disparate identical twins.
