Production-line Italian comedy only slightly helped by the tragi-comic skills of Nino Manfredi, as a guest-worker in oh-so-clean Switzerland desperately trying to break into the Aryan leisure culture. Brusati fatally miscalculates this comedy of failure, despising his protagonist, confusing pathos with camp. Almost as sad, the sublime Karina is thrown away in a bland Euro cameo (as a Greek exile on the run). Good acting, dreadful everything else.
