Terrific movie.
14 November 2010 | by PhylarSee all my reviews

I thought My Father's Will was a charming movie that really resonated with me. I liked the Italian 0ld world father who was dying but still needed to extract one more promise from his son.

I understood the conflicted son who decided to appease a dying old man so that he would never have a guilty conscience.

And of course I loved that once the son took a month off without pay as a survival test, he was able to overcome obstacles and fall in love with a woman who appreciated his intrinsic worth and not his bank balance.

I felt this movie was an old fashioned Cinderella type fairy tale--the kind of movie that is seldom made in the 21st century.

No over the top special effects but just real people with real emotions.

I also thought the cast was wonderful especially Alfieri.
