Storyline

Italy, 1956. In the picturesque island of Amatrello, a unique custom keeps the young men of the village busy: when a girl turns eighteen, every boy is invited to bring a gift for her first date. However the gift is not for the girl, but for the father... who will ultimately determine which boy takes her on her first rendez-vous! Eighteen-year-old fisherman's son Marcello doesn't care about this tradition until he sets eyes on the enchanting Elena, the daughter of the Mayor, who has returned to the island and - according to the tradition - has come of age. As time runs out and competition rises, Marcello comes up with the perfect gift for the Mayor. But getting that gift isn't easy... Soon, he is forced to barter with the entire village, as everyone seems to want something from someone else... Marcello's frantic quest ensues, evolving into a process of reconciliation among the village's inhabitants. Written by C-Films

A little charmer of a film
25 October 2013 | by bestcornishcatSee all my reviews

If you liked Mediteranneo and Cinema Paradiso, you'll love Marcello Marcello. A sweet little romance set in the 1950s in Amatrello, a small Italian village, it's not too sugary, just wryly amusing,cleverly plotted and just plain lovely. Lots of little side stories and wonderfully drawn characters you really care about. I've seen it three or four times now and always spot a little something extra that adds to the beauty of the film. What of those who don't like romantic films? Exquisite scenery, non stop sunshine, what's not to like? Quirky and delightful, it's like a Summer holiday on a plate! In Italian with English subtitles. A film to watch when the weather's bleak and you feel in need of a thoroughly relaxing film with no nastiness.
