User Reviews

This is a very entertaining movie which credibly teaches a wonderful moral
5 January 2004 | by joseph-j-walkerSee all my reviews

I recommend this movie most highly. It is the best one I have seen since James Stewart's "It's a Wonderful Life." It is a beautiful story about family values. It dramatically illustrates family love, and developing a willingness to embrace the views of people who may seem "different." Uncle Nino is an Italian who visits the USA for the first time in order to see his brother's grave, and to get acquainted with his nephew and the family of this nephew. The movie takes us through a very credible ordeal that Nino and the USA family go through in adjusting to different cultural norms.
