Storyline

At the end of 2005, New York's famed restaurateur, Sirio Maccioni, closed Le Cirque, destination of the rich and famous. During 2006, he and his three sons, open a new Le Cirque, taking four months longer and $4 million more than planned. The film follows this process, the new restaurant's opening, and the emotional impact of two New York Times reviews over the next few months. Maccioni, in his 70s, seems tired, chained to his work for his sons's sake; then, the restaurant opens and his indefatigable charm returns. It's a roller coaster ride. At the film's end, Maccioni, with a small Gucci bag on his hip, receives communion in a church in his home town of Montecatini Italy. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Insight into a true Italian family
17 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this documentary and having come from an Italian family, I got more than a few smiles from watching it. The whole Maccioni family is lovable..I especially want to give Egidiana, the mom, a big hug, she is a prize! Plus, the Italian language sounds lovely even with a few colorful expressions thrown in.

I have never been to LeCirque, and I wonder how many of my executive friends have been there, probably not many. I think we may have imagined it, subconsciously, to be intimidating, I don't know, I never thought about it.

NYC is full of exciting eating places but now, I am tempted to give LeCirque a whirl next time I'm in town.
