In the late '90s, the film takes on Ischia, taking a quantum leap with the film "The Talented Mr. Riplay" directed by Anthony Minghella, to keep up with proper commercial genres like the movie "Cient'anne “directed by Nini Grassia, which works so that it looks like a television soap opera pace, up to a melodramatic final. The critics could not help but highlight only positive note, or the beautiful scenery and the fun shape of the hawker”.
