Uccellacci e uccellini (1966)

Innocenti Totò and his son Innocenti Ninetto are drifting on a road in Italy, when they meet a Marxist speaking crow, so the trio travels together in a long journey as their hunger increases.

Unusual and entertaining comedy appears like a Christian with Marxist commentary, but shows its love for the poor and simple people with a hearty sense of humour.

Halliwell**: "A comic fable of a search for faith, sometimes reminiscent of Chaplin in its slapstick identification with the poor and dispossessed, of innocents abroad in a cynical world."
