Storyline

Angelina (Emily Hampshire) is a shy and whimsical Italian waitress who has moved from Italy to Canada to fulfill a family vow by marrying a man she's not in love with. Angelina settles into a neighborhood in Toronto's Little Italy longing for true love. Mike (Sean Astin) is a jaded and cynical copywriter for romance novels but has lost his faith in romantic love. In the days leading up to Valentine's Day, an enigmatic and amorous couple named Il Magnifico (Joe Mantegna) and Mrs. Jones (Kate Nelligan) set the whole neighborhood ablaze with romantic passion. While everyone seems to be falling under the spell of Cupid's arrows, Angelina and Mike meet and just might find the true love that they've been searching for. Written by Adam McCort

Charming little Italian Cinderella
25 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is a very charming movie. It takes heart, a sense of humor, imagination, and a penchant for the romantic to understand the magic of the Italian-Fairy-Godfather. It seems that this film is set in the early 60's yet the characters use modern equipment such as cordless phones, and you see mini-vans along the road. Watch this movie with a light heart and do not expect more than the magic of true love. If you think sometimes that events in the movie do not make sense, remember this, the powerful magic of true love is rarely understood. I would recommend this movie if you want something light and romantic to relax with.
