| A stellar movie, Anthony Quinn's legacy
A sentimental film, sometimes yes; a forceful film, everywhere: This is one for people liking deftly drafted out persons in a credible plot, slowly told with emphasis on good acting. I have read elsewhere here that this was one of (or even the) last role Anthony Quinn has played. He deserves kudos for his memorable acting (and more than credible Italian he speaks throughout the film). What an actor he was, transmitting great emotions without any artifice...

The film is otherwise memorable for his precise depictions of the Italian community in Curitiba, Brazil. There's all the tragic, yet vivid, new-worldish drama of emigrants in a foreign country and what they lived over the decades. The subsequent generations are more modern and from this clash a resurgence comes that benefits all in the family we get to know in this film.

A clear 9 out of 10 for excellence in filming, realization, acting and, last but not least, the plot. Have a ball, but don't be ashamed to wipe an little tear from you eye when the occasion arises...
