Just magnificent
4 September 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I laughed till I cried. The acting was superb and the screenplay portrayed life in an Italian household magnificently. Anyone who has stayed a while in Italy could really relate to the story and long to return to that wonderful country. Joan Plowright's performance of an Italian housewife worrying about the excellence of her 'ragu' was outstanding and Laurence Olivier as the retired hat maker just brilliant. In fact all the actors made their characters believable. A must for anyone who is Italian or loves the country. If only they would run it again or at least bring it out on DVD. The whole series of Laurence Olivier presents was excellent, but this was the best.
