Mambo Italiano


Source: Catholic News Service

Strained comedy set in Canada about a young gay man (Luke Kirby) who tries to keep his homosexuality hidden from his traditional Italian-immigrant parents (Ginette Reno, Paul Sorvino), even while he moves in with his childhood friend and now-partner (Peter Miller). Although director Emile Gaudreault's predictable, long-winded film concentrates more on ethnic stereotypes and identity issues than homosexuality, it walks a fine line between approval of the gay lifestyle and acceptance of a person as a much-loved son. A few instances of same-sex kissing and implied sexual encounters with intermittent rough language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.

Florian: American Catholic Blog The French novelist Leon Bloy once said that there is only one tragedy in life: not to be a saint. It may be that God permits some suffering as the only way to wake someone from a dream of self-sufficiency and illusory happiness.
