Levante lives in a small city near Florence (Tuscany, Italy) and his life is plain and a bit boring, until the day the twister arrives: a bus with six Spanish flamenco dancers that will twist Levante and his family life. Written by

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 »
IMDb users outside Italy perhaps don't know that "Il Ciclone" actually made an "explosion" in the 1990's. An almost non-promoted film, which climbed the charts just by word of mouth. The film is based on the uneventful life of a small village of the Tuscan countryside. As any small village, this one has its grocer, its chemist, its fool, its... nymphomaniac. Among the fields, an old man never leaves home but keeps conversations with his townsmen crossing the path in front of his house, by shouting from his window. Actually, passers-by are so rare that this man recognises absolutely everybody by the sound of the engine of their car. But one day, somebody new crosses that path... I still remember my jaws aching at the end of the film, and the whole country taken by a sort of Ciclone-fever -- so many jokes of the film became part of our daily life. A light-hearted masterpiece of comedy. And the voice of the old man is Mario Monicelli's!!!
