Ecce bombo

Rated NR 103 minutes 1978

This non-narrative, sketch-based film is a non-stop feast of antic and black humor. The sketches are framed within the context of a Roman student's school year, which is disrupted by political and amorous misadventures. The title Ecce Bombo means Behold the Bumblebee and spoofs both the ancient biblical phrase (in English, behold the man) and the then-current wave of terrorism and bombings. This was director Nanni Moretti's first full-length feature, shot with a small but significant budget of $350,000 and featuring a large number of young previously unknown talents.~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
