Finché c’è guerra c’è speranza (film di Alberto Sordi del 1974)

C’è un film italiano che tanto assomiglia a uno americano: si tratta di FINCHÉ C’È GUERRA C’È SPERANZA diretto e interpretato dal grande Alberto Sordi.

Pietro Chiocca, già commerciante di pompe idrauliche, diventa un trafficante d’armi per uso bellico nei paesi più malfamati: ciò per far fronte al lussuoso tenore di vita condotto dalla sua famiglia. Quando tutto sembra volgere al meglio, un giornalista che subdolamente gli aveva portato acquirenti nel movimento di liberazione della Guinea-Bissau lo denuncia firmando un articolo intitolato: “ho incontrato un mercante di morte”. A quel punto a Pietro crolla il mondo addosso, la famiglia gli si rivolge trasecolata, altri gli tolgono il saluto e, per risposta Chiocca pone un quesito ai suoi cari: è disposto a tornare alla vecchia occupazione se essi rinunceranno al lusso, al ché gli stessi fagocitando il loro falso moralismo lo incitano a ripartire verso il terzo mondo.

Nel film appare il più importante trafficante d’armi dell’epoca, Samuel Cummings, ma in realtà Sordi avrebbe voluto Orson Wells per interpretarlo, ma dovette sottostare all’impostazione del finanziatore. Il personaggio della signora Chiocca invece doveva essere ricoperto da Monica Vitti, poi da Dori Ghezzi giunta in ritardo al provino, con il ruolo già assegnato a Silvia Monti.

Un film di denuncia il cui soggetto fu scritto dallo stesso Sordi affiancato da Leo Benvenuti e Piero De Bernardi alla sceneggiatura, che centra il bersaglio denudando una società avida attraverso un protagonista ingenuo ma onesto che sbaglia senza secondi fini accecato da troppo amore mal riposto: emblematica la strepitosa ed amara scena del faccia a faccia tra Pietro e la sua famiglia, per la quale l’uomo non è altro che la gallina dalle uova d’oro ad ogni costo.
