Covering the late March through April general elections of 1994 in which right-wing conservatives routed the incumbent leftists. This is particularly upsetting for Tunin, a mechanic with a firm belief in communism. Fearing that his party is about to lose, he journeys to a northern village to stir up trouble. He isn't there long before he is arguing with a beautiful hairdresser. Their debate is fiery as is his growing and impossible-to-disguise passion for her. She too is intrigued with him, but their disparate ideologies threaten to keep them apart.

A funny and underrated movie, artfully packaged with limited economic means and non-professional film actors. Gnocchi, Pivetti and Solenghi are amusing and intelligent show-men of theater and television programs. Without any ambition to judge and draw conclusions on the social, political and cultural reality, the movie promptly manages to stay on the Italian political facts of mid 90s in a non-trivial manner. The environment is that o Po Valley (nearly the same as Don Camillo film series) and the movie describes political and personal conflicts between left-wing and local separatist activists. Perhaps the last movie which belongs to the tradition of the "Italian comedy", realized by experienced workers of the genre
