Storyline

In this contemporary retelling of the Cinderella story, a feisty 18-year-old Italian-American New Yorker named Cindy is sent off to Rome with her irascible stepmother and vain stepsisters. On the way, she meets, and falls in love with, globetrotting bagpacker Mizio, who eventually turns out to be of Italian nobility. There's a fairy stand-in in the form of a spaced-out astrologer, a dance, and she even loses a shoe at one point. Care to venture a guess how it all turns out? Written by billyray32

Trivia

Although being broadcast four years after its original TV premiere in Italy, the movie, shown as a four-part mini series, was a big success in Germany and made Bonnie Bianco and Pierre Cosso overnight sensations there (1987). See more »

Alternate Versions

There are two versions of the German dub: The West German (SWF) dub, titled Cinderella '87, and the East German (DEFA) dub. The West German three-hour dub was used for the four-part miniseries aired by SWF as well as a two-part version that omits only the credits and recaps. The East German dub was used for a heavily edited one-part, two-hour movie version. Both dubs are available on DVD. See more »

Just great!
22 August 2002 | by MacholicSee all my reviews

This is a wonderful romantic movie starring the great singer, Bonnie Bianco. Great score, and Bonnie is fantastic and cinematographer Dante Spinotti is doing a great job as always. I first saw it as a 4 h miniserial and later as a movie on video. The movie is missing a number of key scenes so catch the serial if you can!
