Uncle-Nino

“Matrimony:  The Sacrament of Enduring Love” serves as the theme for Catechetical Sunday, September 19th.  In celebration of this theme, we offer the movie, “Uncle Nino.”  Beyond featuring two of my favorite actors, Anne Archer and Joe Mantegna, the Italian actor, Pierrino Mascarino stands out as the personification of earthy joy and heart-rending pathos. What happens when an estranged granduncle from a predominantly agrarian culture arrives unexpectedly into the midst of a fast-paced American family? Love happens! Superficial entertainment crumbles in the face of genuine human encounter. While family members stretch out those last minutes before the snooze button expires, Uncle Nino greets the day with violin notes and an exuberant prayer of thanksgiving. Filled with humor, strife and reconciliation, this PG rated film offers enjoyable family viewing and fruitful avenues of discussion.
