Overpowering charms of Guendalina
16 March 2006 | by kakinoki106See all my reviews

When I first watched this film, I was shocked as hit by lightening and captivated instantly by the charm and beauty of Guendalina. Many scenes were printed in my brain and are still there vividly even now half a century later - such as the scene Guendalina appears in all-in-one tights dancing in front of Oberdan. After the release of this film, many girls rushed to shops to buy Jacqueline-Tights in Japan. The story is just a bittersweet memory of vacances but this film is one of the most impressive films I've ever seen due to the overpowering charms of Guendalina. I've been looking for the video or DVD of this film for many years, in vain. It is really incredible! But rumour has it that this film was TV broadcasted in Italy a few years ago and I dream of the day I have DVD of this film in my hand. If my memory is correct, I saw a report that Oberban (Raffaele Mattioli) died very young. I always thank God who led me to see Guendalina - Jacqueline Sassard - when I was as young as her.
