In this black comedy, an elderly man must endure his mean-spirited, insensitive family. He enjoys a happier side of life with an invalid friend who gets around on a special, adapted motorbike serving as a sort of wheelchair. When the old man asks his family for a similar vehicle, they all respond unkindly. His solution is murderous but lucrative… One of the first feature-length films for director Marco Ferreri, known for his interest in the darkly satirical side of life.
