Anthony Quinn Independent (UK) Rated: 3/5 Sep 16, 2011 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: F Sep 14, 2011 Full Review Liam Lacey Globe and Mail As virtual tourism, it's a success but as dramatic fare it's a distinctly thin bowl of zuppa. Rated: 2/4 Jun 10, 2011 Full Review Brandon Judell CultureCatch 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.

Movies The film is beautifully shot and set in Lecce, in Puglia, so breathtaking scenery is an important character. Rated: 3/5 Jun 10, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews

FC S For light fun and some beauty Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/20/23 Full Review Francesco M One of the most well done made movie about gay community, satirical and emotional at the same time, I'll definitely recommend to watch. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/01/23 Full Review andy n This is really great cinema!!! This film is higher and deeper than the theme of gay love. This is an amazing story of one family and its three generations. There is a place for both humor and melodrama. In my opinion, an unbelievably prolonged beginning, just monstrously prolonged. But with the arrival of gays in the village, the film takes on new colors and dynamics.) The love line of the plot takes up hardly 10%, but this was not the purpose of this story. This is real cinema, not a Hollywood blockbuster. And you don't need to expect a happy end or a clear ending from it. This is a complex movie that makes you think about many things... And yet, very subjectively, something was missing for me... Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The initial idea is OK, but it loses the line of its own string as it advances. Also, it starts mainly in the comedy and ends in a drama with little sense. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member I enjoyed the movie which touches on many universial human conditions. The stereotyping of the gay friends is annoying. Other than that the film is entertaining and beautifully filmed. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member 7/10 has a charm Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
