Storyline

At a farmhouse, a large family cooks mountains of food for the next day's engagement party for Silvia and her city fiancé, Angelo. Her parents feud about infidelity; an aging salesman who rents a cottage from them arrives with a young French woman; in Bologna, Angelo's mother frets that her son is marrying beneath him; his sisters are less critical. Early the next morning, the four of them go by train to the farmhouse, joined by Angelo's married, unpregnant sister. The day-long dinner is riotous, couples display affection and impatience, children chase angels. Angelo's family stays the night, and his sister Linda has a visitor. A silver elephant makes the perfect gift. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Beautiful film
6 May 1999 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

This is the first foreign film that I saw and enjoyed. The country and story are beautiful, the people are... odd, and the direction is great. I would recommend this film to almost anyone.
