But she cannot prevent the conflict between Italian and American values.

This was a wonderful experience and merits a wonderful sequel.
27 March 2005 | by slyccSee all my reviews

This was one of the best mini series I have ever seen. I would love to own it. Is there any way that I can purchase the series on VHS or DVD???????? This role seemed so natural for Ms Loren and offered Mr. Olmose the opportunity to really play a truly humane character.

The setting was so realistic and the music score WONDERFUL, truly beautiful. All the actors were superb in their roles .

I would love to see a sequel to this, but only if Olmos and Loren could somehow be used. The daughter who contracted TB would also be a real asset to a sequel. I probably wouldn't enjoy it as much if different actors played the roles in such a sequel.
