Goofs

In the Italian original version, almost all Spanish characters (flamenco dancers), when speaking in Spanish, make a lot of mistakes, showing clearly that they are not at all native speakers (although they are supposed not to speak Italian either). The accent is more or less correct, but it all sounds strange and disturbing to a native speaker. See more »

User Reviews

A most enjoyable look of beauty.
4 November 2001 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Ahh yes...a very sweet love story set in the most beautiful sleepy town in Italy.The cast are wonderful to watch as they go about there trouble free life's.An innocent kind of love comes through in this film.....don't expect Hollywood to produce such pure pleasure....they still don't get it!It's great to see fresh natural beauty especially in the most beautiful Lorena Forteza...she comes across in a way that everyone can relate to.

For a light hearted comedy with a twist of innocents,you cant go past this one.

Enjoy
