The Camels (Italian: I cammelli) is a 1988 Italian comedy film written and directed by Giuseppe Bertolucci.[1][2][3][4]


Ferruccio Ferri is a young passionate about camels from Carpi who manages to win for four weeks in a row in a quiz program of a local television. The manager Camillo tries to capture the ephemeral popularity of Ferruccio and arranges for him and Miriam, a wacky and off-key singer, a tour along an improbable journey by camel across the entire Po Valley.
