lots of charm, and energy to spare
27 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fate and fortunes of an Italian family living in England survive many dramatic changes, beginning when the father takes the advice of a talking pig's head on a platter and strikes it rich at a card game. Fans of the British TV cult miniseries 'The Singing Detective' might know (to some degree at least) what to expect from director Jon Amiel's oddball follow-up: an often fantastic but always engaging fable full of magic and mischief, lucky charms and bad omens, rivalries, vendettas, wild coincidences, and eccentric characters. It opens like the last act of some grand Italian opera, but can't hope to sustain the same level of energy and invention all the way to the final credits. There's a false climax involving a magic box which makes the actual conclusion seem almost an afterthought, but elsewhere it's a lively, compassionate, unpredictable film, and unlike Amiel's previous film no one suffers any horrible skin diseases.
