Alexandre de La Patellière,
Shortly after the film's release, it was sequestered for supposed blasphemy. After a legal fight, it was re-released with some cuts, but was extremely hard to find (no video release, no TV showings). In 1998 it was finally re-released in theaters and later on video in its uncut version See more »
I was surprised to discover that "Il Pap'Occhio" was censored at the time, most of all knowing Renzo Arbore, who is a celebrated show-man, as famous as Roberto Benigni in Italy. Well, watching the film today, its censorship is totally incomprehensible for me. Which gives me a clue, on the contrary, to appreciate the change of Italian mentality in few years! For those who are more acquainted with anglo-saxon cinema, I would define "Il Pap'Occhio" a film in Monty Phyton's style. The taste of nonsense, social satire, puns and "cultural blinks" to the viewer. Very, very funny to see celebrities such as Isabella Rossellini and other serious intellectuals lending themselves to this game.
