Oh... Dear... What a MARVELLOUS film...!!!
13 October 2011 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I have to see this film again. I saw it in Valencia, Spain, and cried my eyes out, maybe because of (at the time) my over sensitiveness about its content (the older Italian woman, owner of a humble neighborhood restaurant (superb nostalgic working class location!) dreaming of, after 40 years, going back to her native Italian village... (I was in that situation myself!!!) but leaving my personal feelings aside, this film perspires such enormous doses of humanity that only in the old Italian neorealism one could find something similar.

This is a characteristic of all Argentinian films (and its people!) when I came back to Argentina after too long a period of absence, I was overwhelmed almost to tears by the friendliness that I encountered in every place I went, being offices, restaurants, cafés, libraries, etc. Why are Argentinians so agreeable? a mystery. Because people that has suffered for so many decades from horrid politicians, military dictatorships and all sorts of corruptions, should be too embittered to have that sweet disposition of character.

Well, I got sidetracked from talking about the film. The film is...GORGEOUS. Do not miss it please, at the end of the viewing you'll feel a much better person.
