Io speriamo che me la cavo (film di Lina Wertmuller del 1992)

Nel 1992 Lina Wertmuller trasse dal libro di Marcello D’Orta il film IO SPERIAMO CHE ME LA CAVO.

Protagonista Paolo Villaggio, nel ruolo del maestro elementare Sperelli, trasferito per un disguido alla scuola De Amicis di Corzano, nei paraggi di Napoli, invece che a Corsano in Liguria, trovando una raggelante realtà in cui i potenziali studenti disertano quasi regolarmente le lezioni per lavori precari allo scopo di sostenere le proprie disagiate famiglie. Emblematica la scena in cui Sperelli va a raccogliere per strada gli alunni redarguendoli, mentre la direttrice è in pratica latitante e il bidello assume compiti ben al di sopra delle sue competenze. Poi un giorno in classe si presenta Raffaele figlio di un camorrista che insulta l’insegnante, la cui reazione è uno schiaffo al ragazzo che incassa e lascia la classe. Gli altri invece vengono conquistati da quel gesto e prendono in simpatia il maestro che pentito si mette in malattia. Poco tempo dopo riceve la visita della madre di Raffaele che lo implora di correggere le abitudini del figlio, convincendo Sperelli che tempo dopo riparte ricevendo alla stazione il saluto della classe. In un secondo tempo arriva anche Raffaele che gli consegna la sua parabola preferita che termina con la frase “io speriamo che me la cavo”.

Un aneddoto dell’epoca narra che il protagonista doveva essere Celentano e a dirigere il film Castellano & Pipolo. Scontato credo che sia andata diversamente benissimo: Villaggio infatti vanta le fattezze del paterno e tranquillo insegnante, esperto, generoso e comprensivo e anche la sua invadente fisicità ne fa una figura rassicurante. La Wertmuller poi non ha certo bisogno di ulteriori elogi data la fama che la precede, per questo va sottolineato invece un titolo relativamente breve di un film da lei diretto, se si pensa a quelli tradizionalmente chilometrici della sua filmografia.
