A black comedy with bouts of hilarity, but underlying a sad truth of postwar Italy in the last 1950's and early 60's. The existence of a minority of Italians unable to adapt to "bourgeois" civilian life after spending too many years soldiering during the 2nd world war. Silvio Magnozzi becomes an idealistic loser in an increasingly amoral, money grabbing society which he tries to oppose, with honest journalism (his last permanent job). He ends up alcoholic, losing everything, money, wife, even freedom (he ends up in jail for libel). He lastly returns to his wife's village in a luxurious car wearing expensive clothes… and wins back his wife. But she soon finds out later that all these luxury goods were lent to him by his despotic boss, a rich industrialist who constantly humiliates him as he works as a man servant in his villa.

One of Alberto Sordi's best acting! Some scenes are famous in the history of Italian cinema: the dinner at Princess' palace with the referendum of the Italian Republic; when Silvio asks a shepherd guard, "Dimmi, pastore, tu sei felice?" (Tell me, are you happy?); when a drunken Silvio spits at all the cars that drive by on the road after his wife had escaped from a night club in a very long piano sequenza shoot.
