Storyline

An Italian-born actress turned stage mother brings her daughter Sandy to Rome for three months' work as a supermodel. Sandy, who's between "soap and water" and womanhood, needs a tutor. Mom wants scholarly Father Spinelli, but when she calls his school, she reaches Rolando, a janitor who longs to teach. He's broke, so robed as a priest, he shows up to take the job. He's a terrific teacher, but Sandy soon realizes he's not Spinelli and will keep quiet only if he'll take her out under the guise of study. When mom meets the real Spinelli and sacks the child-like Rolando, Sandy sulks; then she figures out how to act on her feelings for Rolando and on her emerging maturity.

19 March 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Simpaticissimo film Verdone. I do not understand why we are talking to the end? This is one of the periods of most flourishing career Verdone, the most beautiful, these are not movies that can please the American public and foreign. These films reflect very Italian to the public, their flaws and defects.Verdone is always followed by the Italians although Gallo cedrone onwards tribulate has some '. The spoken Roman is one of the classic strengths of Carlo Verdone. According to me is one of the most talented Italian, without a doubt! Even its part by naive, identified in the first phase of his films, certainly goes well. His subsequent films show a character neurotic, hyperactive and angry. The film green deserve much attention especially colro who speak about human dramas with a touch of irony.

Really nice and funny and beautiful.
