Date 01.17.2014

CINEMA ITALIANO! Offered by the Italian Cultural Arts Council presents LEZIONI DI CIOCCOLATO by Claudio Cupellini in Italian with English subtitles.

Lezioni di cioccolato (Chocolate Lessons) (2007)
A building contractor on the verge of closing his biggest deal to date finds his future jeopardized when an illegally hired worker is injured on the job, and makes a most unusual attempt at blackmail. Mattia (Luca Argentero) is about to make some serious cash when illegal employee Kamal (Hassani Shapi) suffers a serious trauma on the job site. As a result, Kamal is unable to attend an advanced course for pastry makers that he had signed up for. When Kamal threatens to sue unless Mattia attends the course in his place, the contractor reluctantly agrees to take part in the ruse, posing as his employee and bridging the culture gap between the two men in the process. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
