My comments come straight from the heart
8 October 1999 | by (Boca Raton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Ever since I saw this film in 1990 on PBS, I can not get it out of my mind. I am a Canadian of Italian descent and I related so much to this movie, I could not believe it. The interaction between all the family members, the true essence and spirit of being in an Italian family and the relationship between nonno and grand-son made me relate to mine with my grand-dad when growing up in Montreal, Canada. This movie is just wonderful and a great feel good one at that. I am still looking to buy it on video and can not find it. It truly is to be treasured !
