Storyline

In 1986, Carlo Petrini founded the ArciGola Gastronomic Association in Italy and three years later in Paris, launched Slow Food, an international anti-fast-food resistance movement. An ebullient presence, Carlìn, as he is affectionately known around the globe, has become an ambassador for thinking about food differently. From the tiny town of Bra, home to some 27,000 inhabitants, the Slow Food movement has grown to become a revolution, that now has roots in more than 150 countries. Cheese-makers, vintners, and artisanal food folk, toast Slow Food for bringing about a change in consciousness that shook the very foundation of gastronomy. Written by Anonymous

An interesting film about a sparking Italian politician, who industrialized the protection of local gastronomic values.
26 July 2013 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

I've seen the film at the CinemaTavolara movie fiesta in Sardegna, Italy. It is about the life and carrier of Carlo Petrini and his undoubtedly devotion to "il cibo", the food, but peculiarly to slow food. In the '70s when the fast food chains stretched over their tentacles into Europe and the world out of the USA, lots of people started losing his connection of traditional meals, preferring the quick and not too healthy hamburgers and others instead of sitting down and doing the ritual of eating. Carlo Petrini, the emblematic figure of the Italian socialists, took the problem seriously and fought against it in articles, speeches and other forms until he arrived to form the Slow Food Movement which is helping in and embracing farmers in about 140 countries around the world to grow and sell their products to customers. This film is a perfect interpretation of the hard work what Carlo Petrini and his co-workers and successors are doing under the umbrella of the movement.
