Title: Hyphenated Renegotiations in 'Mambo Italiano', the Movie
Authors: Pajalich, Armando
Issue Date: 2009
Publisher: Padova, Studio Editoriale Gordini
Abstract: 'Mambo Italiano', the movie, is analyzed as a non-realistic comedy renegotiating "spaces" and socio-cultural issues in its representation of an Italian-Canadian family dealing with the son's "moving out" and "coming out" as a gay man. The comic mode, charachterization, plot and happy ending point to new possible solutions of the conflict between conservative "Italian" Catholic filiations and North American intercultural affiliations.
