Unadulterated Genius
13 March 2003 | by (Sacramento, California) – See all my reviews

The film is historical and quite moving, encapsulating the experience of Italian Immigrants adjusting to a new life in the New World. The two brothers, and other characters, are well-developed. The film has excellent timing, breathtaking cinematography and a gripping storyline.
