Im looking for a film from the 70's or maybe early 80's, about a family living in the slum of some big city (maybe rio or rome?). The father keeps fighting with the other family members, and I think they try to steal his money. Eventually they also try to kill him by poisoning his food. Cant really remember anything else.Thanks.

[i]Brutti, Sporchi e Cattivi[/i](aka Down and Dirty) is a 1976 Italian film directed by Ettore Scola and starring Nino Manfredi as the miserly patriarch. The film is equally funny and insightful, and black as moonless night. Scola and Manfredi also collaborated with great success in a more dramatic film: [i]We All Loved Each Other So Much[/i].
