Movie Description -Mattia, a 32 year old building contractor in Perugia has all the trappings of success; nice suits, a flash car, a gorgeous girlfriend and is on a promising career path. But behind this facade he is cutting corners with site safety and hiring immigrant workers. He is about to close the biggest deal of his professional life, when one of his illegally hired workers, Kamal is badly injured when falling off a roof because of lack of scaffolding. Kamal, who had came to Italy from his native Egypt to realise his dream of opening his own pastry shop, threatens to sue Mattia unless Mattia takes his place in an advanced chocolate making course at the Perugina factory! Mattia has no choice but to take Kamal’s place in the school and assume his identity.But there Mattia meets the model student Cecilia, who ends up falling for the same sort of man she unfortunately always falls for. Among laughs, misunderstandings and mouth-watering recipes, Mattia will discover a way to bring his and Kamal's disparate cultures together while finding love and new meaning to life at the same time. Nominated for both a Nastri d'Argento and David di Donatello award. The movie is in Italian with English subtitles.
