Directed by Brusati, Pane e cioccolata tells the story of Nino, an Italian immigrant who tries to make a life in Switzerland. Although this film tackles serious themes, it’s Surprisingly very humorous. We follow Nino as he jumps from job to job as he’s trying to make money, finding himself in quirky situations. However, this movie shifts to dark tones when it needs to. Highlighting how Nino struggles with his identity and experience has an italian immigrant. I don’t see another person other than Giovanni Garofoli playing as Nino. He was charismatic, charming and looked like he genuinely enjoyed his role. Pane e cioccolata is a film that achieved a great balance between tones and most of all, entertaining.
