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 »

I loved this film.
4 January 2004 | by (Bucharest, Romania) – See all my reviews

I'm not the kind of love film guy, but I enjoyed this movie very much. I haven't seen an Italian film since long and it impressed me by its typical latin feeling, live passion and even humour. And I'm very happy that I found in this movie a song that I've been looking for since many years but I didn't know it's name.
