Pane e cioccolata (Bread and Chocolate)

With actors Nino Manfredi, Johnny Dorelli, Anna Karina

A comic but poignant portrait of an Italian immigrant working odd jobs in prosperous Switzerland and trying desperately to fit in. Though his work becomes increasingly degrading, he tenaciously refuses to give up and go home. This hapless Everyman is eternally rejected yet ever-hopeful.
