Stefano Many Stories

Italian writer-director-comedian Maurizio Nichetti (The Icicle Thief) stars as a policeman with an overactive imagination; while trying to cope with the fact that a woman he’s fallen for has committed a robbery he’s trying to solve, he develops five alter egos, each played out in a separate flashback (1993). As a rule, Nichetti’s films alternate between imaginative efforts like Ratataplan and The Icicle Thief and relatively tepid efforts like Volere volare; this picture belongs in the latter category, though it’s amiable enough.
