M 92 MIN
Watch Trailer


In this heartfelt all-Tuscan comedy from the writers of Tale of Tales (LIFF15) and Perfect Strangers (LIFF16), Arturo, a talented chef with a troubled past is sentenced to teach a cooking class for young people.

Venice Film Festival award-winner Vinicio Marchioni (20 Cigarettes, LIFF11) stars as Arturo, a 40-year-old world-famous chef with anger management issues. For his community service, he is assigned to run a cooking class at a centre for young people with autism. There he meets youth worker Anna (Festival Guest Valeria Solarino). Among the class is also Guido, (newcomer Luigi Fedele), a 20-year-old who has Asperger’s syndrome and a great passion for cooking.

After an opportunity arises for Guido to participate in a culinary contest, Arturo is to accompany him as his mentor. In between driving lessons, tense competition and basking in the dazzling Tuscan countryside, a friendship is formed between the pair that will change both their lives.

Please note that while the trailer above does not include subtitles, the film will be screened with English subtitles.
