Wonderful Experience
13 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

I happened to be browsing this site and saw the Marcellino Pane e Vino description. I hadn't thought about this film for years. I was born in Italy and in 1955-56 this was a huge success there. I can still remember the song that accompanies the movie. I was too young to know it was dubbed from Spanish. The movie was so popular that my grandfather, who was a barber, would give me and countless little Italian boys the "Marcellino" haircut..that is, front comb and bangs. I've seen photos of me many times but only now remembered the reason for my hairstyle. It has also brought back many memories of my grandfather and our life together in Italy, which at the time wasn't so different from the Spanish countryside depicted in this movie. A lasting memory..wonderful!
