Il Commissario Lo Gatto (film di Dino Risi del 1986)

IL COMMISSARIO LO GATTO è tra i film più divertenti degli anni ottanta, ma non tutti sanno che a dirigerlo fu il grande Dino Risi prendendosi una vacanza dal suo celebre cinema impegnato ma spesso intriso d’ironia.

Natale Lo Gatto, affiancato dall’agente Gino Gridelli, indaga sull’omicidio della giovane benestante Wilma Cerulli. Il fatto accade sull’isola di Favignana dove il commissario alloggia in una pensione gestita da tre sorelle, una delle quali spasima per Lo Gatto, ed è qui che avviene l’incontro con il giornalista Vito Ragusa con cui stringe amicizia supportandosi nelle indagini che, incredibile ma vero, svelano che la Cerulli è viva ed è l’amante del primo ministro Craxi: scandalo che fa cadere il governo da questi presieduto. Il suo successore, grato a Lo Gatto per aver risolto il caso, lo promuove vicequestore a Milano. Ma durante un vertice del G7 commette un errore clamoroso scambiando per un kalashnikov un’aspirapolvere scatenando il panico. In seguito verrà trasferito in Sicilia nell’ardua lotta contro la mafia.

Con magistrale sarcasmo Risi ritrae un immaginario collettivo del lato oscuro dell’Italia attraverso i suoi scheletri nell’armadio, che inevitabilmente portano alla politica, facendo sfoggio dell’incontenibile Lino Banfi: investigatore comico, simpatico maldestro e tuttavia sul pezzo, cui anche i suoi abbagli fanno riflettere sulla realtà. Quante volte infatti è capitato di sentire e poi commentare il non sempre impeccabile operato delle forze dell’ordine? Nello specifico l’attore pugliese è talmente grande che tutto passa in cavalleria e lascia impresso uno dei personaggi più positivi del cinema, affiancato da Maurizio Micheli, Isabel Russinova, Maurizio Ferrini, Galeazzo Benti, Antonella Voce, Valeria Milillo, Roberto Della Casa e Licinia Lentini, che due anni prima aveva recitato con Lino in un altro classico: L’ALLENATORE NEL PALLONE.
