Alves ultimately unites his large cast in festive unity, with comic reversals redeeming the seemingly irredeemable in farcical fashion, and with large doses of ethnic warming.
The acting style wavers from the sensitive to the most sitcomish ... What's ham in Portuguese, canastrão?
A Portuguese working-class couple who give all they've got to their employers must rearrange their priorities when they come into a large inheritance.
For all the odd cultural references, the film is charming and feelgood and pretty funny. If you've been burned by bad French comedies in recent times, this should certainly help mend those wounds.
It's hard to fault the film's rousing shout out to hard-working migrant families, but the message gets muddled in the madness.
First-time writer/director Ruben Alves based this delightful, family-values lark on his life experiences and elicits some playful performances from his ensemble cast.
Alves has served up a loveably authentic romp, that manages to speak to a broad audience, while also echoing the experiences of millions of emigrés around the world.
The film's success lies in its clever, funny script and beautifully judged performances by a Portuguese and French cast who bring the story and its humour to life in an authentic way
Home is where you left your heart.
A movie that calls to my portuguese roots and how no matter where we go, we take a piece of our country with us.
The first half is fun but runs out of steam in the late stages.
