Second successful film by the comic trio, that follows the true (?) story of three strangers chased by the police: a convict who kidnaps a distracted cop and an unlucky inventor.

Fast-paced score by Negrita.

Così è la vita

Second successful film by the comic trio. In this hilarious and moving tale of a kidnapping, Aldo, Giovanni and Giacomo will embark on an eventful road trip in Italy. This film includes, like their previous movie “Three men and a leg”, a series of references to cult movies from “Papillon” to “Birdman of Alcatraz”, “The Great Escape” and others. The story follows Aldo, nicknamed “A.T.M.”, a thief currently in jail for credit card fraud. While police officer Giacomo is escorting Aldo to hearing, they get stopped by Giovanni, a children’s toys inventor who wants to report a theft. Unexpectedly, Aldo comes in possession of a gun and takes both the police officer and the inventor hostages. They make for the countryside and the surreal adventure begins, as the trio finds itself trapped in increasingly bizarre situations like delivering a baby, falling in love – when Aldo courts a mysterious girl named Clara in a restaurant -, and being mistaken for dead after a car explosion. The three strangers end up becoming friends, and back to Milan, they have a bitter pill to swallow. But, surprise after surprise, Clara will help them to get their revenge. We don’t know what lies ahead. Maybe Paradise….
