Storyline

Twenty years after their initial war-time visit three U.S. servicemen hold a reunion at an Italian village. They all have fond memories, especially of local girl Carla. But she has been telling each of them that they are the father of her daughter Gia, so they have all been paying well for her upbringing. As this dawns on the threesome old rivalries surface, but times have changed and complications such as wives, middle-age, and the need to protect Gia's future start to surface. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Fantastico
22 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had never even heard of this film until watching it the other morning. What a wonderful, racy for it's time sort of film. I loved absolutely everything about it. The characters, who would have thought to have placed those actors together. Compliments. The scenery was perfect and warm. Keeping the locals involved made it all the better. I am telling everyone about this film. Believe me, as not being a movie/TV watcher, this film stole my heart completely. Thank you AMC for showing it.

The music was outstanding also. What a fantastic upbeat film with a wonderful message. Love, love loved it.
