My Name Is Tanino (2002)56K
My Name Is Tanino: Directed by Paolo Virzì. With Corrado Fortuna, Rachel McAdams, Frank Crudele, Mary Long. Tanino, looking for a girl he met during the summer, embarks on a journey across the United States, facing the real American dream.
“At a first see, My name is Tanino is a funny, well-directed and well-acted comedy (things that are not at all a given in the recent, mediocre Italian cinematography). But itu0026#39;s also a (extremely light) description of the not always easy relationship between Europe (and, in particular, Italy) and US; I mean the ambivalent view of admiration and suspicion toward each other. And if, to an American viewer, the depiction of the typical WASP family and of the typical italo-American family may be a bit stereotyped, the character of Tanino is quite different from Italians you see in movie and TV-show from the States (like the infamous Paolo from Friends…). My name is Tanino could also be a drive to the foreigner to discover other Virzìu0026#39;s movies, like Ovosodo… I donu0026#39;t know if it was ever subtitled, though.”
