In un piccolo paesa della Bassa Padana la vita si svolgerebbe tranquilla se le dispute tra il parroco  e il sindaco comunista non fossero all'ordine del giorno. I due tentano di ostacolarsi vicendevolmente, benché fondamentalmente si stimino. Don Camillo, a causa del suo temperamento, deve subire i frequenti rimproveri del Crocefisso nella sua chiesetta. Peppone si dà anima e corpo alla costruzione di una Casa del Popolo, ma anche Don Camillo non vuole essere da meno e si dà da fare per completare la costruzione del suo oratorio. 

Life in a small country village in the Po Valley would probably unfold quietly were it not for the constant disputes between the town's priest and its communist mayor.  The two try their best to obstruct each other, though they're basically the same.  Don Camillo, because of his bad temper, frequently has to ask forgiveness from the crucifix in his church.  Peppone gives body and soul to build a House of the People, but Don Camillo has no intention of being outdone in his bid to complete the contruction of his oratory.

After his battles with the communist mayor Peppone, Don Camillo is sent into exile to a remote village by the bishop. Peppone thinks he's free to run the village as he pleases, now that the troublesome priest is gone. But when the municipality decides to build a dike against periodic flooding, the proprietor of the land refuses. War between the village clans is about to begin. Maybe only the strong hand of the priest can persuade the landlord to change his mind. Will Peppone forget his pride and send for his enemy?

DVD-R is in Italian with switchable English subtitles.  Approx. 110 mins.  See film sample for film quality!
