Description: This nostalgic Austrian romantic drama, filmed in black and white, tells the story of two people from different walks of life who meet before the start of World War I. Tonino, an Italian fisherman, still copes with death of his wife and baby after a flu outbreak. He lives on an island and dreams of opening a spaghetti factory in America. Toinette is a blue-blooded woman who married a mean old manufacturer of munitions. They have a son whom Toinette adores. She meets Tonino while she spends the summer in Italy with her aunt the countess. Every day Robby is scheduled to visit Tonino's island. The two adults fall in love and Toinette will not go back to her husband. Instead she, he, and Robby end up in America where Tonino's dream comes true.~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
