As virtual tourism, it's a success but as dramatic fare it's a distinctly thin bowl of zuppa.

The feel is somewhat cloistered and the pace rarely gets the pulse racing but this is engaging and affecting stuff, handsomely shot and well acted: Ilaria Occhini is a stand-out as the grandmother.

The film is beautifully shot and set in Lecce, in Puglia, so breathtaking scenery is an important character.

Lovely views of a southern Italian town, peppered with good food and hearty familial ties make this a charming, enjoyable experience. I really liked the opening & ending sequences with the family matriarch.
