"Bread and Chocolate" stars one of Italy's most renowned comedians, Nino Manfredi.
This poignant comedy, filmed thirty eight years ago, is a classic "commedia all'Italiana." It's been called "Chaplinesque" as you don't know whether to laugh or cry at the same time.
Nino Manfredi gives a stellar performance of a poor Italian immigrant who finds himself working in a foreign country and the bittersweet challenges he faces of opposing cultures.
Among its 10 wins are Italy's Oscar, the David de Donatello for Best Actor & Best Film and the New York Critics Award for Best Foreign Film and Screenplay.
Director Franco Brusati. Starring Nino Manfredi, Johnny Dorelli, Anna Karina Paolo.
