Watched this wonderful movie 3 times the first week after I received it - each viewing revealed a new dimension to the storyline and the intricate relationships among the characters. The music was great, the cast superb, and the movie wonderful. If you're looking for action pass it up. If you want to lose yourself in a subtle, humorous and realistic story rush out and get it.

About this movie

Wiki

Actor Stanley Tucci cowrote, codirected, and stars (along with Tony Shaloub) in this touching and funny parable about two brothers, Italian immigrants, who run an unsuccessful restaurant on the Jersey shore in the 1950s. Convinced by a thriving rival (Ian Holm) that jazz great Louis Prima will be stopping by their eatery for a late dinner after a show, the brothers pull out all stops and spend their last dollar organizing a banquet that ought to make culinary history. Expect to be very hungry after watching this delightful and touching film, but don't rush off to the kitchen until the full design of the characters and their relationships with lovers, suppliers, customers, and one another completes itself. With a memorable performance by Ian Holm and a quirky cameo by Tucci's codirector, Campbell Scott.--Tom Keogh
