Absolutely the most AWESOME vintage teen musical OF ALL TIME!!! In Italian... NO SUBTITLES!
10 August 2005 | by (Burlington, New Jersey, United States) – See all my reviews

Like the best Italian opera, you don't really need a libretto, you just shriek along!

There has never been a film before or since like I TEDDY BOYS DELLA CANZONE. Mainly, and blessedly, a vehicle for the incomparable Mina. Who? Mina!

Mina has been one of the biggest stars in Italy since the late 50s, and everything early period Mina is magical in an ultimately guilty pleasure sort of way. Take Lesley Gore's hair and make it higher, add in pipes that easily reach the fifth balcony, mix with wardrobe by Abbe Lane and Divine on designer drugs and throw in humor coaching by Phyllis Diller. Now, somehow make all that genuinely elegant on a tall, impossibly and totally Italian girl, circa 1960.

There are no subtitles in I TEDDY BOYS DELLA CANZONE, and you simply do not need them. The plot is delightfully thin, to tie together an endless series of performances by Mina and various other Italian stars of the moment. Television is controlled by big business, and in the spirit of c'mon-kids-lets-put-on-a-show, the hero of the story gets ahold of an enormous portable TV camera and broadcasting equipment. They call themselves Clandestini Televisione. The kids romp from location to location, set up the camera, and someone breaks into song. Sometimes beautiful crooning, sometimes cacophonous screaming.

Little Tony, the Italian rockabilly star, does a number or two, as does, inexplicably, a Roman Dixieland band. The big finale field party is almost impossible to watch, and certainly impossible to NOT watch. There are so many disparate sounds and beats fighting for attention, its like having delirium tremens... yet incredibly satisfying.

I promise that if I ever, EVER, find a copy of this on 16mm, I will show it all over the country, outdoors, for free. Seeing it is a life altering experience that needs to be shared!

Todd Kimmell, The Willing Mind, Burlington, New Jersey

postscript... do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of 15 Grandi Successi Di Mina on CD. Note also that there is a beautiful early Mina number used in the film GOODFELLAS.
