Angelo Barberini is the oddball son of Italian immigrants Gino and Maria, who inadvertently ended up in Canada rather than the States. Angelo shocks his parents by moving out on his own without getting married, and shocks them further still when he reveals that he's gay. But his boyfriend, policeman Nino Paventi isn't as ready to come out of the closet -- especially not to his busybody mother, Lina.Written by

*To Bi or Not to Bi?*
A hilariously funny and thoughtful movie!
Gay guys lovers both in repressive families face the pressures of "coming out". Can they survive or will one with a dominating mother and job as a cop be forced to live a lie and the life of a straight?
Scene after scene is highly entertaining. The movie has an excellent script, is beautifully filmed and deserves top marks.
The family of the guys give first class performances as do all the players and there are so many super scenes, my favorite is when one of the guys tries to assist on a gay helpline.
On a more serious note-can only speculate the number of gays, male and female, forced through homophobia and pressure to be in relationships they don't want.
10 out of 10.
