Real Italian-Americans for a change!
Just let me tell you how happy I was to see a film that featured Italian- Americans that weren't gun-crazed New York mobsters, slick Vegas casino bosses, or Jersey kids that spend their nights at discos. I can only imagine how the everyday Italian-American feels going to movies to see only stereotypical images of themselves over and over again. That's only one reason that I thoroughly enjoyed "The Streetsweeper." It was about real Italian-Americans, the type you might meet at a market in San Diego's Little Italy (where this film was shot); welcoming, warmhearted folks. If you're Italian-American, I urge you to see this film. You will not be disappointed! PS I'm Irish-American!
