Heartwarming comedy/drama
22 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen this film several times and find it a heart warming comedy/drama. If you enjoy movies which make you laugh, make you cry, this is a good one for you. It is about an Italian family living in England in, I believe, the 1950s. It's ambiance and feeling remind me of several of my other favorites. It has some mystical elements are reminiscent of The Milagro Beanfield War. It's family focus reminds me of Shower, a wonderful Chinese film about a father and 2 sons, who run a Beijing bathhouse. I find the story engaging, the acting to be quite good and the depiction of England in this period to be interesting. I have had difficulty finding it for rental of late so may actually purchase this one.
