Italian World War II Heist Comedy ‘Robbing Mussolini’ Netflix Trailer
“Someone told me nobody can outsmart history… F&!k history.” Netflix has revealed an official trailer for an ambitious action comedy heist film from Italy titled Robbing Mussolini (in English), also known as Rapiniamo il Duce in Italian. At the end of WWII, a ragtag group of resistance fighters team up to steal Mussolini’s treasure from Milan’s fascist headquarters. They try to steal back all the legendary treasure belonging to the one known as the “Duce of Fascism” – Benito Mussolini. “An ambitious heist movie, full of action and humor” skipping theaters entirely. It’s premiering at the Rome Film Festival which doesn’t seem that exciting. The film’s cast includes Pietro Castellitto, Matilda De Angelis, Filippo Timi, Tommaso Ragno, Luigi Fedele, Eugenio di Fraia, and Isabella Ferrari. This looks over-the-top cheesy but it might be a fun watch. Who doesn’t love a good heist movie? As long as it’s a complex heist, I’m always down.
