This typically scatological, bizarre and grotesque tale from Ciprì and Maresco bears a distinct if distant and blasphemous resemblance to the life of Christ - and more specifically to Pasolini's Gospel According to Matthew. The protagonist is a boss-eyed wanker who drools ecstatically at the mere idea of harlots and donkeys. The story takes in miracles, resurrection and crucifixion, not to mention trouble with the Mafia, and the film-makers paint a memorably vivid portrait of Sicilian manhood, at once parodic and poetic.
