Storyline

CIAO BELLA is a film about yearning for the big love and the insane roller coaster ride of pain, tears and butterflies that comes along with it. In classic Hollywood fashion, we get to follow two teenagers on their journey... straight into each others arms. But there isn't enough time. Just one week. Sometimes life's greatest decisions have to be made at the age of sixteen. Mustafa Moradi is aching to find a girlfriend. The trouble is, girls just want him as their friend. Then suddenly he's struck by a brilliant idea: he'll simply pretend to be Italian. At Gothia Cup. And finally, a world of possibilities presents itself. On the other end of the city, Linnea is desperately searching for a guy with style, courage and a burning passion. Not an easy task for a girl living in Sweden's most tedious and ugly suburb. Who knows what would have become of her, had she not met Massimo, the most romantic Italian in the world. Written by Anonymous

Coming of Age Comes of Age
1 July 2008 | by yossarian100See all my reviews

At first I thought this was going to be the Swedish version of BREAKING AWAY with a young man pretending to be Italian in order to get a popular girl, but, even though BREAKING AWAY is a fine film in its own right, CIAO BELLA goes much deeper and asks more questions, one of which is can a relationship succeed when it begins with lies. Here, almost no one is being honest, which, if you think about it, is pretty much like real life. Everyone lies. So, what is the answer to the question? You'll have to watch to find out.

However, what I will tell you is I like this movie quite a lot. A little patience is required right up front but the payoff is worth the effort.

I'll also tell you there's an absolutely gorgeous redhead co-starring in this little movie, and that's not a lie.
