    Starts with a bang---and ends with a whimper...

    This movie is about three brothers returning to their parents' country home in southern Italy for their mother's funeral. The story attempts to provide adequate background information on each brother and his present circumstances...but IMHO fails miserably at it. About all I could focus on was the breathtaking scenery associated with the rural italian landscape. That and the one brother who was easy on the eyballs. Since I rented this one for free at my local library---no great loss. But I had to watch it over the course of two nights because it became so darn boring after the first 1/2 hour or so. Also, everyone in the movie seemed to smoke like chimneys! UGH!
