What a delight ! A film that captivates, enthralls, entertains and most of all warms the heart from its very original beginning through to the ending that not only surprises but completes a marvelous cinematic experience. Not many films leave you wanting to rewind the tape and watch again, this film does and like other classics such as "il postano" , "mediteraneo" and "cinema paradiso" should be on the video shelf of any lover of cinema and indeed any lover of life !
The casting was perfect and at no time during the film did we see any poor acting or miscasting and all involved played their parts to the hilt.
If you havent seen this film then try and get it on dvd/video and you wont be disappointed.
