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

Excellent Italian feel good romance!
14 January 2009 | by (Dallas) – See all my reviews

This film screened at The Palm Springs Film Fest to a very warm audience. Other comments here have already given a good synopsis of the original plot line, so I'll go on to add some additional thoughts about it. The cinematography is beautiful, the directing is fast paced, and all the actors, some very well known in Italy, were top notch. Anne Walser, producer, represented the film at the screening. She commented on the fact that the young lead actor, Frencesco Mistichelli, was chosen out of a large field. He is a find!! In summary, this is a well produced, technically excellent, very enjoyable movie, which should find a large audience if it gets distribution in the U.S. and elsewhere.
