Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

In this gentle Italian comedy, a troupe of flamenco dancers has been stranded in a town in rural Tuscany. When a stolid wine-growing family agrees to give them accommodations, the family members' lives of dull endurance are transformed as they are affected the romance, excitement and sensuality of their guests. The presence of the dancers causes quite a stir among the villagers as well. Levante (Leonardo Pieraccioni) lives with his father and sister in the family vineyard, and is enamored by the exotic charms of flamenco-dancer Caterina (Lorena Forteza). She is interested in him as well. Levante's family, and Caterina's dance troupe join forces in opposing their union, but all turns out well in the end.
