There is also a radio announcement about Felice Gimondi's victory at Tour De France, which happened in 1965, and the sudden news of the death in a car accident of Fred Buscaglione, Italian singer-songwriter, that had actually happened in winter 1960.

American Graffiti, Italian style
9 November 2005 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

"American Graffiti, Italian style" pretty well describes this movie. Like "American Graffiti", this movie also takes place in the early 1960s and involves a gang of teenagers having fun in the summertime against a backdrop of oldies. There's mischief, mayhem, fun and falling in love. The movie actually has more in common with the beach movies of the early 1960s since it does take place around a beach resort.

The music is rock & roll, Italian style, with lots of original hits of the era from the Italian Hit Parade, which oddly, has a lot in common with good old American rock & roll. For anyone who enjoys early rock & roll and is adventurous enough to check out what the rock scene was like in Italy when Kennedy was in the White House, the soundtrack of this movie is a good place to start. It was available on LP and today, it may be available on CD.

I never knew this movie was ever marketed to American audiences. I wonder how the dubbing turned out. As for me, I saw the movie in its original Italian version, which was fine with me.
