May all the world get to see this film
1 January 2004 | by gdelapaSee all my reviews

I enjoyed "Uncle Nino" not only because of the brilliant cast, but because it lifted my spirits. I found the film to be a warm celebration of the intergenerational bonds of family (teens/preteens, boomers, and our elders). Its overall message was, as I said, spirit-lifting and life-affirming ... something our culture could use more of. I hope and pray this movie makes it BIG. I'm better for having seen it!
