"Academy Award-winner Roberto Benigni (Life Is Beautiful) stars as Dante, a kind-hearted but naïve buffoon who is happy driving the school bus for a group of mentally handicapped children but feels he is somehow missing out on life and love. His fortunes take a dramatic turn when he meets Maria, a dangerous driver who seems immediately enamoured of him. Dante is soon invited to her sumptuous Palermo villa, pleasantly unaware that he's being drawn into a underworld plot. He bears an amazing likeness to Maria's gangster husband, who also happens to be a stool pidgeon and it would be very convenient for the couple if the mobster, in the shape of Dante, was seen to be dead and buried."--Container

2 editions published in 2005 in Italian and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pasolini, the great Italian director and poet, died in 1975, the victim of a horrifying homicide.

In this film, director Giordana explores what happened in the investigation and the trial that followed his death
