I liked this film very much and was touched by this well casted family reunion. Well balanced; often funny and often sad, Giulietta Masina as the 70 years old mother who reunites her children for a last meal on the recently sold family estate, gives a magistral interpretation. The pacing of the film and the editing is well done. Although I did not know any of the actors they made me feel I was part of their family and I came to know their characters as well as the individuals in my own family reunions. We received this film as a Xmas gift and it took us one month to even consider running it. Actually I forced my eldest son to sit and watch. Soon my whole family of six were glued to the screen til the end. Nice isn't it?
