How do you explain to your Italian immigrant parents that their quest to find you a nice Italian-Canadian girl is doomed to failure, because you’ve already found a nice Italian-Canadian boy?

This is the question facing the protagonist in Mambo Italiano, a Canadian film based on the play of the same name. When Angelo decides it’s time to move in with his policeman boyfriend, he must break the news to his parents, who are naturally none to happy to find out their son is gay. And since Mambo Italiano is a comedy, hilarity, hopefully, ensues.

Mambo Italiano is set for a limited release beginning September 19, 2003. The project sounds like a lighthearted look at the joys and tribulations of being part of a large family that also addresses some very real issues, albeit in a humorous fashion. While the film may not appeal to everyone, it does seem to be one of those films that will be “discovered” once it reaches the home video market, and if the film delivers on the promise of its premise, could become quite the niche hit.
