Storyline

Filmed mostly in Italy, "Ciao America" is the story of Lorenzo Primavera an unsettled, third generation Italian American whose search for his place in the world leads him back to the land of his ancestors. In the small town of Ferrara, Italy, Lorenzo finds work coaching American-style football in the fledgling Italian Football League. It's a league where everyone can kick but no one can catch. While coaching, Lorenzo falls in love with Paola Angelini, a headstrong, young music student who forces him to face the same decision as his immigrant grandfather some seventy years earlier.

The worst
15 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie is terrible. Boring and too into itself. The acting is like watching paint dry. I mean, is the love and romance to be believed? And what about the bumbling football team? Are they supposed to be funny? Has Paul Sorvino slipped so badly that he has to accept these roles in movies of this low caliber? The Ciaota brothers?-c'mon, do they have any movie experience at all? Does anybody outside of the North End of Boston even know who they are. And what about the Producer, Roger Marino. Looks like a guy with no movie knowledge and a lot of money and time on his hands. Among his credits listed is former owner of the Penguins. Owner for two years in which the team filed bankruptcy and he lost over 40 mil. --nice job. This movie is only playing in Boston and some NJ theaters-don't expect it anywhere else soon. Its a flop. Save your 9 bucks and buy yourself a couple dinners at Macdonalds. At least that junk will taste good.
