However, as the news of this lucrative job spreads like wildfire, instead, it’s Cosimo’s band of maladroit petty criminals–including a destitute photographer with fatherly obligations–who will take action for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Will things work as planned?
Plot: Best friends Peppe and Mario are thieves, but they’re not very good at it. Still, Peppe thinks that he’s finally devised a master heist that will make them rich. With the help of some fellow criminals, he plans to dig a tunnel from a rented apartment to the pawnshop next door, where they can rob the safe. But his plan is far from foolproof, and the fact that no one in the group has any experience digging tunnels proves to be the least of their problems.

Italian director Mario Monicelli uses comedy to comment on small time criminals.
As a genre, “Italian comedy films” present a different facet of Italian cinema. These films are about an imperfect Italian society where people would like to get involved in self mockery (auto derision) as it enables them to correct weaknesses related to their behavior. “Big deal on Madonna Street” is about a small group of small time criminals from different backgrounds who make various plans to crack the safe of a pawnshop. After the end of second war world, Italy was in an absolute mess. Its ordinary people suffered the most as they did not have any jobs. This compelled many people to make quick money by stealing whatever that was available to be stolen. Apart from Dino Risi, Mario Monicelli is hailed by critics and public as the undisputed master of Italian comedy films. However, he mixed a great deal of dramatic elements in “I Soliti Ignoti”. Monicelli shows how difficult things seem to appear when one is in the planning stages of a crime as people are beset by personal problems. Apart from depicting the universal sociological truth that “crime never pays”, Monicelli’s film also questions why some people do not want to work ?
“I soliti ignoti” is probably the movie I know better and one of the most beautiful pictures in the whole history of cinema. Wonderful charachters, fantastic plot (from “Ne touchez pas le Grisbi”), stupendous soundtrack, amazing screenplay, perfect photography. And funny, funny, funny, but realistic in the Italy of post war poorness. Gasmann plays the role that change his career; before this movie, nobody would believe that he was a brilliant comedy actor ’cause he was know only for dramas. Some unforgettable charachters, like Pisacane’s Capannelle or Tiberio, a sicilan charachter played by a Sardinian ex dishwasher in the movie of their life. And Toto’, incredible amazing in the role of the professor of crook. Is it possible for mr. Clooney to do anything better then him???
