It's nicely performed and reasonably amusing but it's hard to care about the rather self-absorbed characters and their cloistered universe.

Quite possibly the most boring film of 2010.

Daily Telegraph

A disaster area, pure and simple.

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

With a fluid and comedic style comes a film that understands its place in Italian society and doesn't expect any less than complete competency from its audience.

A duty-bound son learns the importance of being true to himself in this slick and bittersweet Italian comedy.

This Italian coming-out comedy has a neat central narrative gimmick. Unfortunately, it hasn't got a lot else.

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.

It's bright and smart and ultimately surprisingly moving.

With a family like this, who needs enemies?

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.

Ozpetek could have trimmed some of the sub-plots, but it's broadly amusing (especially when our hero's camp pals pitch up) and the performances are as warm as the southern setting.

Slickly funny and polished romantic-comedy.

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