'One Night with You' follows the misadventures of a young English woman, Mary (Patricia Roc), in Italy after she misses her train. She stumbles across the path of a charming Italian tenor played by Nino Martini and romance blossoms. Meanwhile the girl's wealthy father and the English fiance she's been promised to, as well as the scrawny Italian man who she had thought she'd marry are hot in pursuit.
The dialogue is the reason to watch this film and it comes fast and spiked, although clearly following the formula set by much better known films. I have trouble with Martini as romantic lead, the guy is too old and smug and the relationship came across to me as a womaniser with well worn moves taking advantage of a facile, spoilt and naive young woman. Who could resist the man's voice? Well I could. The stereotypical portrayal of Italians became grating (especially the accents) as well.
However, the film did catch my attention when channel surfing for late night TV, and managed to hold it. Oh, and the sets were nice.
