Chinese cheese
6 June 2013 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The Chinese invasion in all parts of the world is evident. Italy has not been spared, as most of Europe is experiencing the effects of a different culture which is trying to assimilate to the new markets. At the center of the story is Ciccio, a man who produces mozzarella his amazement, there is a Chinese version of the product that, when closely examined is not as bad, as Ciccio believes it is.

Ciccio, a powerful figure in the Caserta region, has been producing a product that is typical Italian, now he must deal with a powerful enemy that wants his business. His daughter Sofi is married to Totone, a good for nothing singer, whose fame is just a memory. There are other sinister characters lurking everywhere. To complicate things, Totone is in deep trouble because money he owes. Eventually, things get out of hand, as everyone wants a piece of Ciccio's cheese making business, but only Sofi will prevail in getting the business.

An Italian feature conceived by Edoardo De Angelis. The problem with the film is that it plays as a comedy with so few laughs, it might have been better as a drama because the murky elements in the story. The film changes directions toward the end of the story. Perhaps the film made more sense to Italian audiences, but something is lacking to make viewers enjoy it more. Best thing in the picture is Giampaolo Fabrizio, seen as Ciccio. Lovely Luisa Ranieri appears as Sofi. The great actor Luca Zingaretti is totally wasted. American actress Aida Turturro shows up as Autilia, a singer.
