IL RAGÙ DI ROSA PRIORE

I love this clip from Sabato, domenica e lunedi [1990] in which Sofia Loren, as Rosa Priore, argues with other women about the best recipe for a ragù. It is not so far removed from what could happen in an Italian butcher's today....

It reminds me of what happened after my Uncles Funeral. My Aunt made her Pasta Gravy and Candy ( the lady no one likes but always shows up to make a grand appearance) brings a big pot of her Gravy. Well everyone was choosing my Aunts over Candy's , when my Aunts pot was getting low Candy added the remainder of my Aunts sauce to her own. It hit the fan then. You sonna ma bitch was said quite a few times. None of us were allowed to even speak to Candy after that...lol Italian women in my family are very territorial...smiles

I showed this to my husband because I couldn't quite make out everything the women were saying. He laughed so hard, but doesn't remember this movie. So glad you shared it here...now I want to find this film!
