The hints of Italian culture and language gave the film a welcomed sense of nostalgia. I also liked how Angela was a feminist throughout the film (considering gender roles in that era and in Italian culture.).
The plot itself seemed farcical enough to be based on true events, which made the film engaging. However, the pacing seemed very haphazard and the ending didn’t feel earned, nor appropriate. Some of the characters’ actions/inactions became frustrating after a while too. Tina Arena acted quite well considering all of this though.
