This is a delightful, unpretentious story that owes something to the old theatrical tradition of telling a story in which one of the characters - in this case the 'Nonna' of the title - is kept in ignorance of a crucial fact, but the rest of the cast and the audience know exactly what is going on - a type of drama that for many years was a staple in the theatres of London's West End. Its comicality hangs on the contortions the 'in-the-know' characters go through in their kindly efforts to keep up the pretense. The atmosphere of the film - particularly that of the indoor scenes - is rather intimate. Quite the feel-good movie. Recommended for a pleasant afternoon.
