The Joy of Living

A Feature film by René Clément

Produced by Francinex, Tempo film, Cinematografica

Release in France : 15/05/1961

    Synopsis

    Ulisse (Delon) is a naive young man out looking for a job after being released from the army. He drops the offer he gets from a group of fascists to go in with the Fossatis, a family of anarchists (unknown to him). Humor is supplied in the misadventures of Ulisse and a few others, such as two would-be explosive experts (Ugo Tognazzi and Aroldo Tieri). Thanks to the daughter (Barbara Lass) of the head honcho, there are a few romantic moments in store for Ulisse.
