Storyline

Gino Roma holds a pizzeria for thirty years in Brussels, purchased with money from his wife Simone. His quiet life is turned upside down when he learns of the imminent death of his uncle, godfather of the Mafia, Italian billionaire with a promised big inheritance. Gino must prove to his uncle that he is a formidable godfather reigning on Brussels pizzerias, ordering a director, a documentary to present it as a major mobster. Nothing happens quite as planned: Gino family does not quite agree and the crew is not "open" to Gino orders, taking his new role very seriously, especially as the comedy soon attracts the malevolent eye of a true thug.

Disgusting string of stereotypes
15 November 2016 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

This film is a disgusting string of stereotypes. Overall it is a same old take on the perceived failings of the newer and younger generation. So life is not so good as the scriptwriter remembers it and the fault belongs with the whole of society. Thus we have a gratuitous scene in which Gino, the main character, confesses his failure even to baking what robots make and freeze by the thousands every working hour. The problem lies not in the fact that he might be lazy, incompetent, cut costs and corners even when that is not the case. And the fault is because more restaurants about the same have been opening lately. To add injury to insult, Ben Gazara dubbed in Italian?!
