carrying a generous pension, and which it seems impossible to be terminated from.
When a new reformist government vows to cut down on bureaucracy,
Checco refuses to take a severence payout and is transferred to the North Pole
out of spite.
But as someone who refuses to to relinquish such a privilege, this slacker will
go to every length to keep his entitlements at the expense of all others.
With non-stop gags and pointed satire, it is no wonder that the film was such a
huge success.
