The story expresses its social value as it brings out the new ways of thinking of young people today, and specifically their effort to put culture and knowledge in the place of violence, oppression and authoritarianism. The movie stands out as a satirical dissection of the Mafia and its underworld, which is based on abuse and social injustice. The result is an ironic, original, amusing tale, mixed with musical and occasionally surreal elements. Adopting a humorous tone and an intentionally campy style, the story revolves around the wedding of a godfather’s sister – a beautiful woman whom no one dares to romance for fear of her brother – and the shyest boy in town. A series of hilarious events transforms the boy’s terror into the deepest affection for his bride. The same happens to the girl, whose life undergoes a gracious metamorphosis. Right after the wedding, the groom takes the place of his brother-in-law in the local mob. With his wife’s help, he turns the despotic, violent ways of the previous godfather into a system of compassion and justice for the whole community.
