Movie Info

Tommaso is the youngest son of the Cantones, a large, traditional southern Italian family operating a pasta-making business since the 1960s. On a trip home from Rome, where he studies literature and lives with his boyfriend, Tommaso decides to tell his parents the truth about himself. But when he is finally ready to come out in front of the entire family, his older brother Antonio ruins his plans.

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

  • Ozpetek takes these men and women as they are, revealing deep emotions in broad strokes. Everyone here is a disappointed misfit, not just the loose cannons in the clan.

  • 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.

  • Openly gay Turkish film director Ferzan Ozpetek has never been nelly about scattering characters of his own persuasion throughout his oeuvre. . . .Here he again explores the plight of closeted homosexuals in a gentle farce full of fond stereotypes.

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

  • It's bright and smart and ultimately surprisingly moving.
