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 »
Very, very sweet movie, sweet characters, sweet love story. If you were looking for an Italian version of Twister then you're out of luck, cause I don't think you'll ever find one, if you want some light-hearted entertainment this is the place to look. The jokes in this are actually funny, rather than the slapstick style of some other recent "comedies" (see: There's Something About That Bimbo Cameron Diaz). The settings are beautiful, the acting ain't bad at all, the characters are fun. (Notice that there ARE actual characters in this, as in, they could be real people, not the one-sided stereotypes of There's Something Wrong With This Movie.) Really, it's much funnier than a lot of those dopey two-hour come shots disguised as "comedy movies" you stupid Americans keep churning out. Viva Italiana!
