Mom doesn't want me to make

my first communion.

A disaster! At school,

everyone is doing it.

Mom says that we're atheists?

Is it true?

It's rather her. My dad was head

of a local socialist group

We had to steal money from him

to buy my communion suit.

No one should be denied

the 1st communion!

Where are you going? Come here.

Don't touch anything.

- They are made of rubber.

- Yes, they are...

...but we'd better stay away.

- You must be joking.

Who do you think

you are scaring?


Well done, dad.

Tougher than Tarzan.

Now you can't say that I'm afraid

I was afraid.. of those..

A real dinosaur, was tall as

a 30-storey building.

Daddy, I have to tell you a secret.

I have thrills. Mom wants to

take me to the doctor.

- Real thrills?

- Yes, thrills.

- And sex?

- Dad, don't be obscene.

Obscene? Where do you pick up

such words?

I really wish to know.

What a lovely headdress.

I just hope it's in the catalogue

so you can make a copy.

Headdress? This is not

a headdress...

This is the skeleton

of a man discovered

in the Cavillon cave,

near Menton, in France.

Dad, will you buy me a Coke?

A Coke?! What kinds of places

is your mother taking you to?

To learn karate!


Dad, you have to solve my problem.

Tell her I want to take

the 1st communion!

If not, I'll kill myself.

All tragedians in family, eh?

Why won't you let your kid

make his 1st communion?

- Why are you shouting?

- Hush, you!

No one should be denied

the first communion.

- Who is it?

- We have to talk.

Yes, about money.

It's been 2 months since...

Not with you. Put me through

to the dog. Yes, the dog.


Yes, I'm waiting for you downstairs.

Call the hyena on the phone.

Shut up, idiot.

If you don't send the dog down,

the kids are staying with me.

Dad, you can't steal kids

just like that.

Good God, I'm having a fever.

Send the dog down!

You dirty, ugly slut!

Don't shout. The neighbours

are listening.

Mom is driving you crazy.

She's a civil servant.

Not an artist like you.


Say hi to your little brothers.

This one bites.

The hyena told you to bite me?

Go with him...

Because I don't know...

Get dressed and go with him

An unbelievable thing

The Marines entered the hemicircle

armed with guns.

All UN representatives were ordered

to lay down with their pants off.

The UK representative,

who offered resistance

received a hard blow

in the face.

The Italian representative


took side with the Marines..


Hello. It's Paolo.

Is this a good time to call?

Just a second.

It's about this...

I've spent an enjoyable afternoon

I would say. Rather quiet.

I've been with kids.

I saw the dog again. He's got a

deep affection for me as always.

A short quarrel with the hyena,

but nothing to worry about.

I came back home. Prepared

something to eat. Bread...

No, not bread.

Brioches with milk.

I can't get enough

of brioches with milk.

I could eat just that all my life.

All of a sudden,

without the slightest warning

by no reason altogether


So, the question I'm asking you

is this:


That hyena..

won't let the kid

make the 1st communion.

What a b*tch!

She still thinks we are living

in the times of Stalin.

Don Camillo and Peppone.

Mom, are you proud of your son?

I took a 2h long nap.

Now I'm going to work,

all happy.

She's not letting him

make the 1st communion.

Remember the beating you took?


You have to talk to Nicola,


You must tell him straight out

If he doesn't undergo that


tomorrow morning at 11...

Wasn't it already arranged?

No, he changed his mind.

You know how he's like.

He won't listen to me.

I can say whatever I want but...

- We have to talk.

- My friend.

I calmly observe the others

fooling themselves.

Lenin got removed from

the Red Square.

A bunch of people

profaning graveyards.

The spiders must have eaten

his legs.

The body, damn it, was made

of garnished papers.

I don't know, I was eating.

I wanna show you something.

The blondie over there.

- So what did you eat today?

- Bread with milk.

Look at Giovanna.

Horny Giovanna.

And she's a real marvel.

What legs she has.

- Can I kiss them?

- You're tickling me.

Bread and milk.

Did you put a bran to ease

the transit?

Why should you care

If I sh*t or not?

I sh*t, you sh*t

he shits, we sh*t..

Stop shitting us!

You'd better think of your own

transit. To the hereafter.

What's this story about not going

to the clinic to get operated?

And you come here to provoke

with your bran talk?

You decided to sh*t

on your brother?

I'm not shitting

I'm going to the Galapagos.

To a simple place.

I'm going with you.

First, you gotta get cancer too.

I'm the pianist.

I'll dedicate this evening to you.

I'll be waiting for you down there.

Tomorrow, you'll go to the clinic.

Yes, I'll take you there by

kicking your ass. At 11 am.

Don't be late.

I'll give you the Galapagos.

I'll go to the Galapagos

I'm going all alone.

I'm leaving you all.

I'm going all alone.

Good evening all.

- How are you?

- Good.

- Are you hot?

- We're burning.

More enthusiasm

More enthusiasm.

She's my mistress.

She'd like to make love with Francesca

but it doesn't turn me on anymore.

I don't like this song.

Do you know "Paper flowers?"

Yes, I do. I even saw the movie,

at Paris. At the Ursulines.
