Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

Sergio (Carlo Verdone) and Nadia (Eleonora Giorgi) are door-to-door sales reps for a recording company that features the popular Italian singer Lucio Dalla. Nadia is attractive and interested in a bigger and better life for herself. Sergio is well-fed and undistinguished, and together they make a most unlikely romantic pair. Still, the romantic sparks ignite for awhile, and then they separate, leaving Sergio determined to capture Nadia's heart. His method for winning over the fair lady is an ancient one -- he does so by pretending to be super-rich. That leads him up more than one blind alley, creating a maze of incidents that can only be resolved in a final series of twists at the end.
