Hoezo in KINO

Is it just a matter of time before a man opens his eyes and gives up his one dream of happiness?” We giddily conclude this odyssey through Wes Anderson’s favs with the beautiful Brooklyn based romantic comedy Moonstruck, featuring a dashing if disheveled Nicolas Cage and the always radiant Cher, who bagged a Best Actress Oscar for her troubles. A very New York movie about the compatibility of love with marriage, Italian-American family vicissitudes and the everlasting magical attraction of our lunar companion. Quintessentially 80’s and all the better for it, this film is like a loving if slightly clammy hug. Like the ones you endured from your aunties at large family gatherings. English language without subtitles.

Storyline

No sooner does Italian-American widow Loretta accept a marriage proposal from her doltish boyfriend, Johnny, than she finds herself falling for his younger brother, Ronny. She tries to resist, but Ronny lost his hand in an accident he blames on his brother, and has no scruples about aggressively pursuing her while Johnny is out of the country. As Loretta falls deeper in love, she comes to learn that she’s not the only one in her family with a secret romance.
