I am so sorry I was not able to see it as I feel I would have enjoyed since my parents made that perilous journey and I remember the sories my mother told me of the crossing. I live on Staten Island and was not able to get to Manhattan where it was playing. I hope I will be able to see it on DVD. Thank you for your input. Ceciliagallo@aol.com
I really enjoyed this movie!! It was very realistic and showed the hard life the Italians had in Sicily at the turn of the century. The voyage was long on then and then they had to endure the hardships at Ellis Island. I think every Italian should see this film!! and even if your not Italian it shows other imigrants from other countries and they had similiar hardships. A must to see and have if

The few good points, if you speak Italian,
