Storyline

In this contemporary retelling of the Cinderella story, a feisty 18-year-old Italian-American New Yorker named Cindy is sent off to Rome with her irascible stepmother and vain stepsisters. On the way, she meets, and falls in love with, globetrotting bagpacker Mizio, who eventually turns out to be of Italian nobility. There's a fairy stand-in in the form of a spaced-out astrologer, a dance, and she even loses a shoe at one point. Care to venture a guess how it all turns out? Written by billyray32

great romantic movie with superb songs
4 September 2005 | by (Slovakia) – See all my reviews

Well, maybe I'm a little melancholic about this movie, but that's how it is. I saw it when I was about 10 years old and it left a lot of wonderful memories... It's quite possible that when I would see it now, it would be just another of bunch of too-sweet too-impossible romantic affairs, but I saw it just in the proper age when I was just discovering love and thus it imprinted unforgettable experience. When I see it now, all nice things from the past come to life.

The movie is about young wannabe-singer Cindy, which has an evil stepmother and 2 sisters (this, along with her name, is a parallel with original Cinderella). The story unfolds as Cindy (together with her step-family) comes from NY to Rome for a vacation. During this vacation, she is constantly humiliated by her stepmother, but she falls in love with wandering rock-band singer Mizio, who is actually... well find out for yourself. I grant you that if you were teenager in the 80's, you surely won't be disappointed.
