Well worth my time...
14 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wonder why more people haven't commented on this Sundance film festival winner? Maybe because it's a very niche film.

Extremely well done study of New York Italian American culture on all levels; the food, the sex; the dysfunctional relationships with each other and with the church; the constant cursing; the weakness of the men and the strength of the women (Who really rules?) As well as the love; the camaraderie; the family support and acceptance with, "This too shall pass attitude and it will be better."

I agree with one of the reviewers that some of the characters were not well developed. It was not important to develop them. Anyone knowing the culture can fill in the blanks. Maybe not such a good technique for "outsiders". Perhaps a reason why it has not become a popular film.

It's also a very astute study of male female relationships and a view at the difference between men and women.

This is the second film I've seen by Savoca and I love the way she just says, "This is it! It is what it is!": No judgement values, no preaching just take it or leave it. Make up your own mind, while she presents all aspects "good and bad".

Well worth my two hrs., and maybe yours.
