THE FILM
The plot of the movie is based on Pierino (a vivid temper kid), a character who likes making jokes at the expense of anyone coming across his way.

Despite both the subject and the performance being quite poor Pierino Contro Tutti was among the most successful film in the lean season of 1981 and grossed ten billion Lira (10 milion dollars) of the time, when a ticket price was around 4000 Lira (4 dollars).

THE MUSIC
Master Berto Pisano belongs to that class of Italian composers who despite having always worked prolifically and generously do not enjoy the due recognition.

In the period from 1960 to1980 Pisano often composed memorable soundtracks of superior quality compared to films themselves. The style of Maestro Pisano was similar to that of some of his fellow composers who were very active during the same period of time, such as Gianni Marchetti, Stelvio Cipriani, Franco Micalizzi, Nico Fidenco, Piero Piccioni and Gianni Ferrio.

Maestro Pisano made use of pop sounds and rhythmic uptempo for many of the soundtracks he composed, and he merged those styles with other broader sounds styles, sometimes including also jazz. His scores highlight sensitively the scenes of the films but, very often, they live their own separate lives. Pisano composed many soundtracks and recently European film music collectors raised him among the first favorites. Finally Master Pisano is rightly appreciated for his beautiful scores, and not only as a competent music arranger. John ansell

TRIVIA
Pierino Contro Tutti is the first film in the popular TV series containing the popular funny jokes of the young rascal character. At the premiere of the film, seeing the audience clapping to the beats of Pierino, director Sergio Leone left angrily the theater, saying: Why do people clap at such gross jokes while none of my films has ever received a small award?

With the same actor Alvaro Vitali playing the part of Pierino, within a year these other movies followed suit: Pierino Colpisce Ancora, Pierino Medico Della SAUB, Pierino Torna A Scuola. While in these other two movies, Pierino Il Fichissimo and Pierino La Peste Alla Riscossa, the part of Pierino was assigned respectively to actors Maurizio Esposito and Giorigo Ariani.
