“To eat good food is to be close to God,” Italian chef and immigrant Primo says. He and his brother Secondo have one last chance to save their failing New Jersey restaurant in a plan to impress famous bandleader Louis Prima. This understated comedy celebrates brotherly love and uncompromising standards. Roger Ebert wrote that it “is about food not as a subject but as a language—the language by which one can speak to gods, can create, can seduce, can aspire to perfection.”
