This comedy drama stars Michael Dellafemina as pizzeria owner Leonardo and Caprice Benedetti as his materialistic wife, Anna. Leonardo is a compulsive gambler who tries to make up for his losses by becoming a male escort. Rita Moreno shows up in a cameo as Isabella, Anna's pushy mother. Gandolfini has a bit part as Angelo, a sleazy gangster.

Audience Reviews for Italian Movie


Maybe I am expecting too much on this, the Eve of Christmas. I love being a member of Netflix because I can get all these cheesy movies all the time without the commitment of actually purchasing them. Anyway, Italian Move SUCKED! It was a neat story and had some interesting characters but the acting was not very well done and the camera work was not even as good as cheap network TV. HOWEVER, I think this may have propelled James Gandolfini onto the Soprano scene (in spite of his horrible Italian-American accent). Oh well... onto the next one...
