Maria (Ginette Reno) and Gino (Paul Sorvino), emigrated from Italy to Montreal in the 50s and married after their arrival in 'the new world', a world they still haven't quite got used to. Their world is shattered when their son, Angelo (Luke Kirby), decides to get a place of his own. However, they are relieved when Angelo's childhood buddy, Nino (Peter Miller), decides to move in with their son. After all, Nino is an old family friend and he's a respectable cop. Their relief is short lived, as they find out that Nino and Angelo are much more than mere roommates - they're lovers! Will Angelo and Nino be able to resist the gargantuan pressure coming at them from all sides and find the strength to survive as a couple? Will Nino be able to withstand the seductive charms of the voluptuous Pina? Will Angelo find the courage to fully come out of the closet and confront all of them while he accepts himself?

But straight people should not avoid !There is a message for every person, be it from Mediterranean descent to anyone who feels that they don't quite belong.
There will be inevitable comparisons with my Big Greek F W, but it's not a case of seen-one-seen-them-all. You will just love the family, your heart will also ache for the poor confused parents. You just feel like hugging them ,as you reflect on your relationship with your own parents.
Do yourself a favour, and get this movie ASAP into your DVD player, and ENJOY
The story doesn't really amount to much. The characters are all stereotypes. It doesn't say too much about the human condition; conservative parents disturbed by discovery that son is gay shock!!!!!!!!!
Having said all that this is a thoroughly nice film that leaves you with a warm glow after. Sure, it's not the kind of movie that picks up a batch of Oscars, but it sure is a lot more fun than Brokeback Mountain.
In this film then, two childhood friends assume being gay in their grown age, when they finally manage to get out of their stifling, choking and strangling Italian families and they enjoy it as long as they remain in the closet, but there is always some body louse that will go around and tell at least one person under a strict promise and oath to keep it secret, and then that will be too late. Everyone will know instantly.
But one of the two will accept the deal of getting dragged into marriage and fatherhood by an old high school girl grown adult and solitary, though rather rapacious as for men, though there is a time when you have to settle down, isn't there? Her last chance becomes his first and only chance to be back in the good Italian mould, at least for a while with a closet in the garage or a motel downtown. He will take it because then you don't have to answer difficult questions and you don't have to face tense situations with your mamma or your papa, or your neighbors or even the peeping toms in the street and the gossip in the supermarket.
And you will be alone again but you will finally be free and you will finally be able to say mother-f*****g-s**t to the whole world, God included and you will have your life in your own hands. You will start a new career, etc.Read more ›
Very funny dialogues, great acting, a lively cinematography (some Almodóvar inspired strong colours) and some superb support roles (the sister was my favourite character) make the movie a very entertaining and feel good experience. Downside aspects were, for me, the abuse of some clichés and the fact that the two main characters were not ever really convincing in their truth.
"Mambo italiano" is one of the movies I am gonna come back to.

Loathed as I am to critique gay cinema, some plots and storylines are weaker than the acting. Gay cinema needs more investment!Published 19 months ago by Movie Moose
To Put it in a nutshell this is a very good comedy, lots of fun with the parental characters and others, if you want a good comedy this could fit the bill, enjoy.Published on 14 Mar. 2014 by swingsc
Omg! Luke kirby is so hot! And this film is awesome. Thoroughly entertaining and massively enjoyable. Uniformly excellent cast. No sex tho. But that doesn't matter here.Published on 25 Feb. 2014 by BigAl82
