When Nino attempts to revive his inert industrialist boss with coffee, he inadvertently switches on the massage feature of the bed, dousing himself, but he is splash-free when he leaves to fill an ice bucket with water and shown dripping with the coffee after he returns to the bedroom. See more »
Bread and Chocolate is a very humanistic movie that mixes funny with sadness. The way the Brusati shows us the way foreign people are welcome to Switzerland is somehow not the saddest way but in addition it has some humor. This makes the audience, like people said before, cry and laugh at the same time. It can also be based on a real person and not fictitious as people like Nino would do anything to stay in a country where they have opportunities. Excellent job for Brusati, it is the first Brusati film I have seen and I am looking forward to see another one.
