Storyline

A runaway coffin, a conservative wedding, an eccentric older man, two transsexuals, the police and an adorable puppy, collide on a humorous and heartwarming journey through the picturesque South of Italy. The "unexpected" death of 103 year-old Rosa creates an awkward family reunion the evening before what was to be a lush and opulent wedding. Rosa's grand-daughter, Chiara Gammarota, is set to marry the son of a wealthy general, much to the excitement of her conservative father, Nicolo. Francesco, Nicolo's "eccentric" brother caused a town scandal when he revealed his homosexuality 40 years earlier. He has returned for the wedding-turned-funeral and the two polar opposites see each other for the first time in decades. Acting on the final wishes of their mother the conflicting brothers reluctantly embark on drive through the countryside to bury their mother in their hometown; forcing them to confront family secrets, learn to love one another again and discover the true meaning of "...

A laugh against prejudices
24 May 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the story of two brothers that have not talked to each other for 40 years because one is ashamed of the other due to his brother's (Nino Manfredi) declared homosexuality. A trick of their death mother brings them together to carry her remains to the land where she was born.

A wonderful movie with all the warm feelings that only the Italians can bring so well to the screen.

The movie teaches a lesson to the people that are used to live according to conventions. A beautiful comedy very well told and filmed that will make you cry and laugh. It is a must to see it.

Manfredi is as good as always, the music by Enrico Morricone is also great as well is the photography.
