Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sometimes the very best movies are those you never hear about. I never knew about this movie until it came out on video. A different kind of role for Pacino - low key and though he isn't actually on screen for that long, he's very effective in the role of the young hero's Italian grandfather (He's certainly come full circle from the Godfather movies). EXCELLENT MOVIE - A GEM!"
Great Movie

"I saw this movie on cable recently, and was very much taken with it. I had never seen it before, but I would like to watch it again with my children. The way it simultaneously portrays the perspectives of 3 generations, and their own imperatives, is beautiful. The camera work is wonderful, as is the soundtrack. This film also portrays very compellingly the pressures people were under during the great American depression, which helped me understand my parents much more than these WWII movies everybody is so excited about. I liked those when I was an adolescent though. I will purchase this when it is available on DVD. (I will only purchase VHS in very exceptional circumstances now, DVD being the far superior format.)"

"This is still one of my favorite Al Pacino movies. Even though
Pacino has small part his role has much impact. I tried to tell
a friend what this movie was about and my eyes started to well up. Coming from a close Italian family, this touched my heart.
This movies supplies us with excellent performances sprinkled with a heartwarming story. Watch this on a Sunday evening you
will be better off that you did"
Words alone wont describe this wonderfull film

"You rarely ever come across such films, and those films which are very rare to see or hear are the best ones. I am a fan of Al Pacino and I was really very happy to see him in a totally different role. A heartwarming, excellent performence by Pacino. So was Jerry Barrone who played the role of Pacino's grandson. Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio did her part very well indeed. A very interesting film, a heartwarming drama that will touch your heart, specially the wonderfull chemistry between the grandfather and his grandson and the beautifull Scenario of Italy in the 1930's. The film will make you smile and shed tears too. A film you would love to see on a calm and quiet afternoon or on a rainy day. If you like intense films, good drama, this is a must for your collection."
