Mad About Mambo

We watched a recording of Mad About Mambo recently. I approached this movie expecting it to be set in South America. Instead it was set in Ireland. Wow, that makes a difference.

The story of a teenager who dreams of becoming a football (soccer) player and in the course of the movie becomes involved with a girl who loves dancing. The film is cute and funny and very well done. The issues between the couple include class differences, religious differences and difference in aspirations, but it ends up being very fun to watch all of the action unfold.

The dancing is also fun. I have read many dancing purists complaining that they are not really dancing a mambo, but if you are as uninitiated into the specifics of dance as me, this is not an important factor in evaluating the movie. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it an 83.
