Polvere di stelle (Stardust) is a 1973 Italian film which was directed by Alberto Sordi. It was starred by Alberto Sordi and Monica Vitti.


Mimmo Adami (Alberto Sordi) and Dea Dani (Monica Vitti) are local professional dancers in the impoverished Italy of the Second World War. Their lives change suddenly as American soldiers stop in their town hoping to be entertained in accordance with the Broadway style. Effectively, they perform up to their expectations. However, as the army men have to march northward, the moment of glory of Mimmo and Dea finishes heartlessly.
