YMMV / Don Camillo

  • Adaptation Displacement: Many people know Don Camillo and Peppone only from the movies, which is one of the reasons why they say the stories are set in Brescello, because that is what the place is called in the films, and the real-life town of Brescello is where the films were shot. In the short stories and books, even those written after the first films came out, the town is never named, and it appears to be a composite of a number of places in Po valley.
  • Foe Yay: Just watch how Don Camillo and Peppone look at each other sometimes...
  • Magnificent Bastard: Deconstructed with Don Camillo: sure, he is the most intelligent person in town and shows few qualms when he gets really worked up, but he generally ends up repenting to the crucified Jesus on the altar afterwards.
