Storyline

When Stefania breaks up with her boyfriend Andrea, little does she realize what the summer has in store for her. She winds up on vacation at a Greek resort 'isle of love' with her 14 year old niece. Unfortunately, her teenage niece has something more than sun and surf on her mind; she decides that this Mediterannean paradise is where she will finally lose her virginity. However, in an ironic twist, the cute guy she has her eye out on turns out to be none other than Andrea, her aunt's ex-boyfriend. This light-hearted "comedy-of-errors" is a valuable lesson in what being a woman means at any age. Written by Film Movement

Chocolate makes you lose weight...
2 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Open Roads festival at Lincoln Center and enjoyed the film. Though slightly predictable, much of the comedy was well done. Stefania Montorsi is simply beautiful and positively lights up the screen with her personality... in the case of "Dillo...", she lights up the screen with her dysfunctional yet lovable personality. The comedy of errors on the island is amusing, though at times almost unbelievable in its coincidence. Martina Merlino's performance as the disillusioned, virginal Megghy could break your heart. The Bollywood style sequence at the end was very over the top, but the director's comments on someone's question during a q and a session on the scene's origins as a tribute to Bollywood made it worth it... Supposedly, during production, they bought a used cd player, and the tune that is played in the final scene was from a cd left in the player before they bought it. All in all, a funny film set on a beautiful island.
