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 »
I loved this movie when I saw it in Italy two years ago. It ranks with the best of the recent Italian films I've seen (e.g. Il Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, Mediteraneo, Il Postino). I've been anxiously waiting for it to be released in the United States so I can urge all of my friends to see it. It is a charming tale about a collection of sympathetic characters, with good music and lovely visuals. See it if you get the chance.
