I nuovi mostri is a 1977 Italian comedy film directed by Dino Risi. The movie is a collective work of three different directors - Mario Monicelli, Ettore Scola, and Dino Risi. The film is a follow-up to the 1968 hit film I mostri. The movie is structured as a series of sketches portraying various facets of Italian society. Each of the sketches is a satirical comment on a different aspect of contemporary Italian life. The sketches are linked together by a common theme and setting - a large apartment building in Rome.

One of the most memorable sketches features Vittorio Gassman as a wealthy businessman who becomes obsessed with a beautiful woman (Ornella Muti). He goes to great lengths to court her, including buying the apartment building where she lives and building a luxurious penthouse for her. Despite his efforts, however, the woman remains indifferent to his advances.

Another sketch features Alberto Sordi as a lazy government employee who fakes his own death in order to avoid going to work. He assumes a new identity and starts a new life, only to find that his new identity is just as dull as his old one.

In another memorable sketch, a man discovers that his wife is having an affair with his best friend. He decides to turn the tables on them by playing a practical joke on them, which inadvertently leads to tragic consequences.

The movie also features several other memorable sketches, including one about a group of tourists who get lost in a dangerous part of town, and another about a group of middle-aged men who relive their youth through a soccer match.

Throughout the film, the humor is lighthearted and accessible, with a mixture of slapstick comedy and witty dialogue. The performances from the cast are uniformly excellent, particularly from Gassman and Sordi, who bring a level of depth and pathos to their respective roles.

Overall, I nuovi mostri is an entertaining and insightful comedy that provides a snapshot of Italian society in the 1970s. The movie's mix of satire, humor, and social commentary makes it a timeless classic that still resonates with audiences today.
