Additional Info

This highly praised version is a sparkling contemporary commedia dell'arte about a feuding Neapolitan family. Peppino suspects his wife Rosa of infidelity and she is brooding because he spurned her cooking and praised a meal prepared by his daughter in law. The character rich cast also includes a crusty grandfather, a formidable widowed aunt on the make for the family doctor, her mama's boy son and a "liberated" daughter in law. During the traditional Sunday dinner Peppino's and Rosa's tempers flare amidst a gathering of family and friends. Add to their feud generation conflicts, a lover's quarrel, humorous insights on momism and bourgeois Italian life and the meal is unforgettable. Of course, all is forgiven by Monday.
