It's easy to forget what (or who) is important in life - great family film!!!
on April 7, 2009
I can't believe this is finally out on DVD!! I've been wating years for this! My wife and I were fortunate enough to see this film in it's very limited theatrical release after I saw an article in our local newspaper about the film which was about to end it's year-long run in a local theater. Granted it was a small theater in a megaplex, but how many films do you hear of in this day and age running for a year?!?
We were both deeply touched by the film, but even more touched after the film ended. The actor who plays Uncle Nino, Pierrino Mascarino, stepped out to a standing ovation and spoke to the packed house about the film and how important it was to him. He insisted on hugging everyone in the theater as we exited.
If you're a typical American family with 2.3 children, a dog, and are working parents who seem to spend most of your time working, running errands, and seeing your children on the way to bed, I strongly recommend you see this film.
