Nonna's Trip

A Mexican widow with a fading memory and a weak heart (Ana Ofelia Murguia) insists on visiting her husband's Italian birthplace before she dies. Knowing she could never survive such a journey, her family concocts an elaborate deception: a trip to a fake Mediterranean village, built nearby as a movie set and populated with local actors. Sebastian Silva, an assistant director on films as diverse as Babel and Titanic, makes a promising feature debut with this well-paced, bittersweet 2007 comedy. 90 min.
