Plot Summary

Amelia and Pippo are reunited after several decades to perform their old music-hall act (imitating Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers) on a TV variety show. It's both a touchingly nostalgic journey into the past, and a viciously satirical attack on television in general and Italian TV in particular, portraying it as a mindless freakshow aimed at morons Written by Michael Brooke

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Upon the film's release in the USA, Ginger Rogers sued the production and the distributors for 'misappropriation and infringement of her public personality'. The case was dismissed, the judgment stating that the film referred to her and Astaire only obliquely. See more »

Quotes Amelia Bonetti: We were very successful and our impresario insisted we be advertised as "Ginger and Fred."
Interviewer: How many years have you been retired? 20? 25? People want to know.
Amelia Bonetti: Maybe. We were very, very popular. To this day people sometimes stop me on the street.
Interviewer: Why agree to a comeback? Fans could be disappointed.
Amelia Bonetti: I don't know why I accepted. Because my grandchildren kept insisting, and friends or because of televisions's magic spell. Anyway, here I am.
