A very endearing film
14 January 2012 | by saurabhjSee all my reviews

I was a little apprehensive when I went for this film at the Pune International Film festival today - not able to find any material on this online and no reviews. However, I was very pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed the 90 minutes that I spent watching the film.

The entire film is shot in Italy and the cinematography is excellent - pulling you into landscape. The film has been shot partly with the point of view of a young boy (with a handycam) and a point of view of an elderly gentleman and the director has done some really good work with the shots and narrative.

The film has some element of humour though might not be roll on the floor funny. In the end, the film might not stay with you forever - but is honest, endearing and a good way to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon.

If you have watched "A Good Year" and enjoyed the setting and the atmosphere, you will enjoy this film as well. Kudos to the director and the entire cast for making this such a pleasant experience.
