A nice lighthearted drama
23 May 2012 | by mignonette7See all my reviews

Although I have to admit that the film was not as deep or perfect as it could have been, I immensely enjoyed watching it. Coming from the very area this film plays in, I can appreciate the accurate representation of this area's lifestyle, scenery and culture. In this particular setting the movie is rather believable as well. Furthermore, I loved the use of the correct accent for Southern Sicily, showing that the producers did their research right. All in all, its a very nice movie with the right dose of sadness, drama, and lightheartedness. Definitely recommendable to those who like Sicily, but not so much for those who just wish to see a good drama.
