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 »
Levante Guarini (Leonardo Pieraccioni, also director) lives in a sleepy town in Italy, where nothing ever happens.Then one day a bus with six beautiful flamenco dancers from Spain arrive and nothing is the same.Il Ciclone from 1996 is a terribly funny Italian comedy.I found myself laughing at loud more than once.I watched it in the Italian class with a group of other students on Monday last week and I noticed I wasn't the only one laughing.Some of the moments that made me laugh were the awkward moments Levante had with his love interest Caterina (Lorena Forteza).Also the language barrier between the Italians and the Spanish offers some funny moments.This movie is a gem of European cinema.The Italians got it.You just watch this film and you'll come to the same conclusion; the Italians got it.
