Klauen will gelernt sein (Germany) (TV title) / (West Germany)
Escuela de ladrones (Spain)
Our trip into Italian cult cinema makes a stop in 1986 to meet one of the Italian comedy milestones of those years. Scuola di ladri is the umpteenth entertainment masterpiece by director Neri Parenti. Starring a trinity of superactors—Massimo Boldi, Lino Banfi and Paolo Villaggio—it tells the story of three ordinary guys who become adventurous thieves. The movie marks one of the director's greatest successes, and in fact, a sequel would be spawned the following year, Scuola di ladri due.
Long-time artistic partner of Neri Parenti, Maestro Bruno Zambrini composed the movie's score with his usual devotion, gifting it with iconic themes like the main titles ("Lady Killer" sung by Lany Jones) and various background music for the heroes' vicissitudes, sometimes orchestral and wide, other times more rhythmic and funky.
A timely jewel that is welcomed by our ears, especially since the original master tapes of the recording sessions—taken from the Maestro's personal archive—were remastered with great care by Claudio Fuiano.
The CD features a lavish 16-page booklet with liner notes by Daniele De Gemini and the jewel case is housed in an external cardboard sleeve, as in the DDJ LX tradition, with art design by Alessio Iannuzzi.
