Uncle Nino

Uncle Nino is a 2003 American film directed by Robert Shallcross, produced by David James, and starring Joe Mantegna, Anne Archer, Pierrino Mascarino, Trevor Morgan, and Gia Mantegna.

The film deals with a dysfunctional family, who have lost their way, and a distant relative played by Pierrino Mascarino intends to bring them closer together.


A father, Robert Micelli (Joe Mantegna), has become a stranger to his family and thinks only of his lawn and job. After decades of no contact, Robert's Uncle Nino (Pierrino Mascarino) flies to America for an unexpected visit, with a suitcase full of homemade Italian wine. Nino helps the family realize the true value of family.
