'Gigli' ( ) is a 2003 film written and directed by Martin Brest and starring Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, and Lainie Kazan. After a protracted battle between studio and director, a radically revised version of the original film was released. The film was the focus of significant media attention and popular interest prior to its release, primarily because Affleck and Lopez, the film's stars, were romantically involved at the time. However, critical reception was extremely poor, and in the years since its release Gigli has frequently been cited as among the worst movies ever made.

Beniamino Gigli _ Mamma This song was given to me by my favorite Italian friend. Im granted his precious friendship. I love hearing this song, esp. the version sung by Gigli. I can hear it over and over again... I've been searching for it on utube, but haven't found it yet. So, uploading this to share with u all is my way to thank to that friend of mine. Enjoy it! Lyrics: Mamma, son tanto felice perché ritorno da te. La mia canzone ti dice ch'Ä il piů bel sogno per me! Mamma son tanto felice... Viver lontano perché? Mamma, solo per te la mia canzone vola, mamma, sarai con me, tu non sarai piů sola! Quanto ti voglio bene! Queste parole d'amore che ti sospira il mio cuore forse non s'usano piů, mamma!, ma la canzone mia piů bella sei tu! Sei tu la vita e per la vita non ti lascio mai piů! Sento la mano tua stanca: cerca i miei riccioli d'or. Sento, e la voce ti manca, la ninna nanna d'allor. Oggi la testa tua bianca io voglio stringere al cuor. For English translation: Mamma, I'm so happy because I return to you. My song tells you. It's the most beautiful dream for me! Mamma I'm so happy. Why should one live so far away? Mamma, just only for you my song is flying. Mamma, you will be with me, you will not be alone anymore! How much I love you! These words of love, sighed for you by my heart, maybe are not used anymore. Mamma! But my most beautiful song is you! It is you for a lifetime (you are my life). And in my life I will not leave you again <b>...</b>

"Gigli is curiously moving and ingenuous as the chubby, sentimental tenor he was--and he sings all sorts of material in that unrivalled voice of his, mezza voce alternating with impassioned forte."--Alan Blyth, reviewing this film in Gramophone

"In Ridi Pagliaccio, to express the drama, Gigli colors his voice far more than any other Canio on film or record. His voice is more mature--and more appropriate for the part--than in his 1934 recording, on EMI."--Stefan Zucker
