    Beautiful scenery. A part of Italy I have not visited but now on my list. Easy story, insightful messages and good laughs. Happy to have attended.

    Visually stunning, heartwarming and funny story about the struggles of the Italian immigrants post WW2 in trying to adapt to a new language and culture! It illustrates the generational divide between father and son, and going back to one's roots to reconnect with one's heritage, which many can relate to.

    Good storyline. Beautiful cinematography and humorous script. The cast and crew did a great job capturing the essence of the script! Bridging the gap between generations and honouring traditions.

    The cinematography is stunning. The characters are vibrant and the father - son conflict was relatable. I thought I might be disappointed Loreena Mckennit wasn't part of the soundtrack but her melodic "voice of God" was most satisfying. Italian in-laws were delightfully 2-faced. I will see this again to capture more detail. I would highly recommend.

    I never walk out of movies, but I walked out of this one about 1/2 way through. When I first walked into the theatre, everyone in the theatre had white hair - that should have been my first clue. By the way, I watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding and loved it - this movie is nothing like that.
