Despite the title the character played by Villaggio bears little resemblance from the one he played on Italian television shows under the same moniker. Instead of a sadistic/overbearing personality Kranz is here shown with a bumbling and meek demeanor more similar to that of the other 'loser' characters in Villaggio's repertoire (Fantozzi and Fracchia).


The story recounts the travesties of a German scientist/stage magician eking out a miserly life in Rio de Janeiro's favelas until getting involved in an improbable kidnapping/ransom plot.
