Storyline

Italy, 1956. In the picturesque island of Amatrello, a unique custom keeps the young men of the village busy: when a girl turns eighteen, every boy is invited to bring a gift for her first date. However the gift is not for the girl, but for the father... who will ultimately determine which boy takes her on her first rendez-vous! Eighteen-year-old fisherman's son Marcello doesn't care about this tradition until he sets eyes on the enchanting Elena, the daughter of the Mayor, who has returned to the island and - according to the tradition - has come of age. As time runs out and competition rises, Marcello comes up with the perfect gift for the Mayor. But getting that gift isn't easy... Soon, he is forced to barter with the entire village, as everyone seems to want something from someone else... Marcello's frantic quest ensues, evolving into a process of reconciliation among the village's inhabitants. Written by C-Films

a heartwarming and very entertaining film
12 November 2008 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Marcello is a young man who lives in a sunny village by the sea with a strange tradition: When a girl turns 18, the boys of the village each make a present to the father of the girl. The father then decides with which of the boys his daughter can go out on a date. Marcello doesn't think much of this tradition until he falls for the daughter of the mayor... The following pursuit for the perfect present is fast paced and very entertaining to watch. Nice acting, camera-work and music and the funny story make this a winner. I really hope that this film gets picked up by a big distributor, because it deserves a bigger audience. If you liked pictures like "Il postino", this one is recommended to you.
