La Nonna can't remember much except her late Italian husband and the fact that she wants to go to Italy with ALL her family before she dies. Most of the family members don't have the time, money and especially can't see the point: "Why bother? She won't remember that we went anyway." -- "Well, if she can't remember let's just tell her we already went." ---Obviously, it's not that easy. Written by S. Silva

My opinion about it
8 February 2008 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

This movie seems like it was made with a home video camera, so the visual quality is terrible. The music is terrible as well. The idea is good. But it could've been a better comedy. If they would've made it into a 10 minute short film it would have worked out very nice. But stretching it just made it boring. Ana Ofelia Murguía's work is excellent 'cause she seems very natural. I liked how they dealt with one of the girls being a lesbian 'cause they didn't make it too obvious or forced. I didn't like the costumes. I don't know how they made everyone to at least try to speak in Italian but that was wonderful. The ending is very touching.
