Three Men and a Leg (Italian : Tre uomini e una gamba) is a 1997 Italian road film and romantic comedy co-written and co-directed by the comedy trio Aldo, Giovanni & Giacomo and by Massimo Venier. [1] [2] [3] [4]



Three friends - Aldo, Giovanni, and Giacomo - have to travel from Milan to Gallipoli, in Apulia, for Giacomo's wedding. The bride's father, who is Aldo and Giovanni's employer and father-in-law as well, is a rich and vulgar businessman who doesn't like his sons-in-law and has given them the task of bringing him a wooden leg, the work of a famous artist who's about to die and will soon become of great value. The three men set off on their journey and soon meet Marina, a young woman on her way to Greece. Her car breaks down and Aldo, Giovanni and Giacomo will try to help her, which will lead to the blossoming of a beautiful friendship and a deep connection between Giacomo and Marina that will make him and his friends question the whole point of their journey.
