"UNDER THE CHINESE RESTAURANT" is a delightful live-action feature by the creator of the mostly-animated ALLEGRO NON TROPPO, Bruno Bozzetto. It is about Ivan (Claudio Botosso), a robbery witness, who takes cover in the basement of a Chinese restaurant where he is transported through a mysterious door to an exotic beach in a distant land with brilliant twin suns! This surrealistic world has strange creatures and beautiful native girl Eva (Amanda Sandrelli), her bizarre father (Bernard Blier), an eccentric inventor. Eva falls in love with Ivan and the adventures multiply and transform Ivan's life. This is a fun-filled romantic comedy in a whimsical land of fantasy.
