Animated painting and live-action

Written and directed by Gianluigi Toccafondo
A coproduction Les Films de l’Arlequin / Archimede Films Italie / Arte France

With his wife as an accomplice, a sly farmer rips off two of his tyrannical creditors, flogging them first a donkey that shits money, then a saucepan that boils without fire, and finally a straw that enables men to raise their dead wives to life.
The two suckers stab their wives to death and are then arrested when the police find them blowing painfully in the so-called magic straw.
