Piedone l'africano Reviews:

Amusing comedy set on Napoles and a far country as South Africa for Bud Spencer enthusiasts , repeating his usual role as comissario , this time dealing with diamonds robbing and drugs . Rizzo (Bud Spencer or Carlo Perdesoli) is a corpulent and bouncing cop from Napoles . Commissary Rizzo gets a smartphone message from an African boy who wants to meet him . One time happens the meeting the stranger is shot , but Rizzo gets a photograph of his tiny son . Rizzo nicknamed Flatfoot travels to large town of Johannesburg and finds Bodo ( a likable Zulu tiny man ) and his former partner (Enzo Cannavale ) who poses as restaurant owner . Rizzo goes to the mansion a rich boy (Joe Steward) there he dances with Mary ( a superb Dagmar Lassander) a moving dancing . Soon , he goes a safari where meets opponents (Werner Pochath) , facing off dangers, and few adventures.This is a nice entertaining juvenile for Bud Spencer fanatics , as he's delicious . It packages action, fist-play , slapdash , humor with tongue-in-cheek and is quite amusing . This release has some cool and few hilarious moments, though the Terence Hill-Bud Spencer duo movies are better . The movie isn't everytime nice , sometimes is new and diverting and on a couple of memorable opportunities ,it's frankly delicious. The film displays innumerable laughters , jokes and slapstick . Enjoyable screenplay by Verucci and Giovanni Simonelli . Catching musical score with noisy songs by Guido and Mauricio De Angelis (Spaghetti Western habitual) and composed by synthesizer , as usual . Colourful cinematography by Alberto Spagnoli who photographs splendidly the African outdoors . The motion picture was professionally directed by Steno , Stefano Vanzina (father of Carlo Vanzina). He wrote and directed in the 60s Toto cars (Toto versus the four, Two colonels) ; Walter Chiari and Raimondo Vianello shows (Heroes of the West, Twins from Texas). In the 70s and 80s directed Bud Spencer films about Flatfoot or Rizzo, also named Piedone, such as, ¨Flatfoot in Hong Kong¨, ¨Flatfoot in Egypt¨ and ¨Banana Joe¨ , among others. And in the 80s directed TV series , ¨the Professore Jack Clementi¨, again with Bud Spencer. Rating : Acceptable and passable , though only for Bud Spencer fanatics .


Even if you like Bud Spencer movies, then "Piedone l'africano" and "Piedone in Egitto" will be a revelation: Bud, this fist-fighting bear, can also act, if the script and the director will leave him to. Seriously: Both films include *plot* and are not shot for the mere fist fighting scenes that create Bud Spencer so popular. They include also a very intriguing score. Watch it, it's a must!


Stefano Vanzina is one of the nice creators of journey films,and Piedone l'Africano (1978) is one of his greatest movies,and also one of the greatest journey films ever. This director is the one who made Piedone d'Egitto (1979),Piedone a Hong Kong (1975),Piedone Lo Sbirro (1974),Banana Joe (1982) ,etc.;the south-African journeys are the most fanciful,lively,imaginative and thrilling of the entire Piedone franchise,a delight,and a feats of the picturesque cinema.There are many unbelievable scenes,and a lot of gusto,and an instinct for merry adventures.Beautiful animals set gratis are shown,and some of the presumable delights of a safari,and there is also a dose of burlesque comic,and some suspense.The nice Steno had a style,and his funny films are picturesque and fresh,merry and low-brow.Pragmatic,very simple,efficient;no originality,no ideas,but enough fun,the work of an able director.They offer exactly what they promised.Many Italian journey films are characteristically for a nation that knows how to amuse with weak budgets and a vivid sense of the show.These African tribulations are fast-paced,but there is time for a smile.Piedone and his buddy did left Italy;they are actually in a various continent.But it is like they are chasing villains in the backyard,and as if they never left Napoli.The celebrated Bud Spencer is not needed to act;instead,we expect him to have an almost respectable air,and some indulgence,but also not a several violence,and to be heavy and comic;he is. An interesting presence is Dagmar Lassander.
