In this heartfelt all-Tuscan comedy from the writers of Tale of Tales and Perfect Strangers, 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 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. Among the class is also Guido, a 20-year-old who has Asperger’s syndrome and a great passion for cooking.
In this film, the celebration of spectacular, rural landscapes and the respect of the authentic Tuscan culinary traditions become a powerful metaphor of the need to follow the heart rather than fashionable trends.
