Loved the film. Very touching. Very moving. Saw it several times. The writing was very superior, as well as the acting. Stellar ensemble cast of very notable talent.
Whether you were from an Italian background or not, the characters were very believable. Despite the dark nature of the story, this was a very funny film. Each of the characters seemed like people you knew, very familiar, very down to earth...
The music was evocative without distracting. Every element of the production was there to serve the story, which is the way it should be.
Highly recommended. Look forward to seeing it out on DVD someday.
