Il professor Ianniello sostiene che il bradisismo che da secoli interessa la zona di Pozzuoli è prodotto dalla grande madre, la terra. Ma le grandi madri si trovano anche fra la gente comune e fra queste vi è Rosa Priore, famosa per la sua cucina ed in particolare per il suo ragù. E tra sabato, domenica e lunedì, iniziando con un pranzo a cui partecipano altre a Rosa, il marito Peppino, i tre figli e i coniugi Iannello si sfiora la tragedia causata da Don Peppino che da tre mesi, visti i cambiamenti nei suoi confronti da parte della moglie, sospetta una sua tresca con il professor Iannello. Ma perchè mai Rosa avrà cambiato atteggiamento nei confronti del marito?Written by

Beautiful movie about the making of the Napolitan "ragu", centerpiece of the weekend which takes from Friday (shopping) through Saturday (talking about it)to Sunday (eating it). A feist for the eyes that will make you hungry for "ragu", for Italy, for Sophia Loren and for Napoli...if you get a chance to see this rare gem, don't miss it...and somebody, please release this movie on dvd.
