Don Camillo (internationally released as The World of Don Camillo) is a 1983 Italian comedy film directed, produced and starred by Terence Hill. It is the remake of Le Petit Monde de Don Camillo (1952).[1][2]


In a small village in Emilia Romagna, the parish priest Don Camillo repeatedly collides with the communist mayor Peppone. The two do not share anything in common and the slights are continuous, at some times coming to blows with one another. Don Camillo coaches the football team of young boys of the village, and the day of the final match is near. Peppone however, to make a joke in bad taste to the enemy, corrupts the referee. Don Camillo realizes it and fights again with him; so Don Camillo is exiled. But the citizens of the village do not agree, and so Peppone is forced to make up for betraying their confidence in the government.
