Synopsis by Mark Deming
A straight-laced father and his not-so-straight brother come together under strange circumstances in this comedy from Italy. Only a few days before his daughter Chiara (Elena D'Urso) is to be married, Nicolo Gammarota (Lino Banfi) gets the sad news that his mother has passed on. Now Nicolo must arrange a funeral just as he's putting the finishing touches on his daughter's wedding. Adding to his troubles is the arrival of his brother Francesco (Nino Manfredi) to pay his respects. Forty years before, Francesco came out of the closet with his homosexuality, causing a minor scandal in their community; Francesco moved away, leaving his family to deal with the gossip, and Nicolo hasn't spoken to him since. However, it was their mother's final wish that Nicolo and Francesco come together for her burial, so the brothers embark on an unexpectedly eventful trip through the countryside to grant her last request.
