Boy Meets Girl (II) (1998)
User ReviewsReview this title
The scenes in which Angelina and Mike were in together were great - I wish that there had been more of them. I like the scene in which Angelina appears to be speaking in English without her Italian accent, and Mike appears to be speaking Italian.
If you like Italy and the Italian language, chances are you will like this movie. If you are Italian, as I am, you will relate to the characters. There was a good amount of Italian in the movie. There is a funny scene in which Mike learns Italian "gestures." and what they mean. He also gets a sort of magical romantic makeover.
I'm not sure where this movie was filmed (Canada, maybe?) but I thought that the scenery was beautiful. It sort of reminded me of the Little Italy in Montreal.
I like the fact that both men and women will enjoy this movie - it's not a typical "chick flick." All in all, a good movie - a must - see for Sean Astin fans or anyone who likes romantic movies.
The main characters are very obvious, and the supporting roles really enhance and drive the story, but seemingly they create a vivid picture that is so lacking in many 'romantic comedy' type movies.
It is a serene experience watching this movie. I seldom find a blemish free movie. But i have to say this is a gem. The music is great and there are some fantastic segments capturing the magic and vitality of love. Bliss.
You can switch it on, and forget the world with this one. ( If only a DVD would come out, you would not need to keep rewinding & wearing out the video tape... )
My favorite scene is the stag party. The directing was fantastic throughout the movie but especially in this scene. The men at the party were all in tune with their movements and expressions. Most of them did not have speaking parts but their collective energy through the music focused on the two dancers. One of them in particular stood out with his unique antics that enhanced the cohesiveness of the group.
The flavor of the movie is definitely Italian. One is continually educated in the customs of Italy throughout the movie. No matter what heat or coldness occurs between the characters, the movie emits a warmth that any romantic loves to bask in.
For some reason I have not been able to find this movie and/or know anyone that has been lucky enough to have taped it. The reason it is not available to the public yet, maybe due to it not being released. I understand it was co-produced by CBC Television, whom may own the rights.
But otherwise, it was a very good movie. And like always, Sean Astin did an awesome job!
A heart felt movie. It was filled with a poetic atmosphere.
I was moved by storyline, giving me more motivation to learn Italian. It's another romance language that expressions stream out with such a creative meaning, more
than is said. It was a sweet creative, well put storyline.
I heard about it before, and never saw the movie until this year.
I have written poems before, and I desire to write one in
Italian as well. Going back to the movie. Emily Hampshire did wonderfully in her role.
