Critic Reviews for After the Fox (Caccia alla volpe)

All Critics (9)

...a witty rebuke to the excesses of international cinema, and a lush, accomplished comedy that provokes genuine mirth...

February 17, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Most of the stabs at satire miss the mark by a wide margin.

April 18, 2015 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Not one of the better Peters Sellers comedies, but still a fascinating failure.

October 14, 2005 | Rating: 3/5

So-so Sellers vehicle has its funny moments.

January 3, 2005 | Rating: 3/5

The results are generally antic and wacky, though the total effect -- at times a trifle strained -- is not always up to the brilliance of its individual parts.

Another movie that pretty much wastes Sellers.

Audience Reviews for After the Fox (Caccia alla volpe)


A mostly silly Italian offering that posits that a thief pretending to be a famous movie director can get away with anything, including hijacking a whole town.There are moments here but they are few and far between. Maria Grazia Beccella charms. And the theme song is better than the whole movie.

one of Seller's lesser known works, I first saw this as a kid in the mid 60's...thought it was a cool heist caper...and alot of humor to boot...cast is superb with Britt, Balsam and Mature..enjoyed the soundtrack and locales...a bit zany..but a good Peter Sellers movie usually is!! An enjoyable watch at an actor at the top of his craft...
