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>

While this was not a 'food movie' ("Tanpopo", "Big Night", "Eat Drink Man Woman", etc. the food preparation scene was one of the memorable scenes in this movie. The cinematography was beautiful, the storyline wholesome, and I still remember the soundtrack.
