The long title was meant maybe as an extra added allure, but the movie has little to recommend it. It's about 4 parties (a gang of mexicans; another led by a local boss who speaks with a sicilian accent like Don Corleone and whose last name is...Costello; a fake priest; and the "hero") giong after a million dollar of american government money. The movie is a comedy Trinity style (the "hero"'s name is Charity) but I can't remember having laughed once. Rosalba Neri plays her unsexiest part ever as Costello's brother. The score I can't rememeber anything about it. Still this movie is better made (strange to say, but it's true) than even much worse examples of the comedy western subgenre, as it has a plot, a rhythm a variety of situations which make it not overly boring. So it gets 4\10.

I want to see this film. Any chance it's available in English?

I probably meant Neri was playing Costello's sister.
