American Graffiti, Italian style
(firstname.lastname@example.org) from Italy
9 November 2005
"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.
