Rose tattoo film and the book is based on Tennessee Williams of with features Dakin Williams and Shepherd Mead, having a different sight of bringing Italy to their former homeland which is United states, (Osborne 1956). Frank Merlo is seen bringing William to the home that he grown and later takes him to the extended family, where he introduces him to them. William is later introduced to different various details pertaining Sicilian. There are differences when we view the movie and later on write the book of Rose Tattoo.
The differences that emerge between Rose Tattoo film and the Book is that; firstly the film starts with a chorus of a mother voice which is later described to be from Sarafina Delle Rose, while in the book this is just explained. In the film, Rose, the main actor of the film is seen vividly to be a woman of much paradoxes representing certain part of Italia (southern Italia to be specific).
Secondly. In the book Sarafina arrives in America and is faced with challenge with no skills of using a language and having different cultural beliefs from those of mother country. She seems to participate in everything and later she reconciles Italian prostitute, (Madonna, 1995). In the film Rose is reinforcing a Traditional culture and the role of the woman as a wife, and the mentor of her girl child.
Nevertheless, in the book Sarafina articulates the concept of male stereotype which is described as fesso, meaning literally foolish man. In the film Sarafina is seen getting profits and several benefits from these male stereotype.
The book having American origin seems to criticize all ideas done by Sarafina in promotion of male stereotype, where woman is there for male gender either emotionally, spiritually and physically. Sarafina states the right of men to value virginity though they go outside marriage to satisfy their bodily pleasures. In the film man stereotype is visualized to be right idea.
