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 eighties music
21 December 1999 | by (Johannesburg, South Africa) – See all my reviews

This movie was originally released as four 1hour episodes in Italy under the name: Cindy. I have, however only seen the movie version. I loved this movie. The story is loosely based on Cinderella. Cindy is a small time singer in New York who goes to Rome, Italy with her step mother and step sisters. She meets up with Mizio, a biker who lives in an abandoned warehouse, who also happens to sing. Little does Cindy know that he is the son of a wealthy prince. Needless to say, they fall in love. The Cinderella story has been done and redone and over done, but where this movie succeeds is in the great music. Any lover of eighties pop music will love the melodies in this movie. Bonnie Bianco was one of the best singers from Europe and she excels in this movie. She's not a bad actress either.
