What are people saying?

  • Mugino's rating of the film Theater of Life

    It's chock full of the who's who of the culinary world, but as with everything Bottura does, the food is made subservient to the community he feeds. The soup kitchen's regulars are profiled candidly, if a bit disjointedly, showing how necessary and yet still how inadequate the Refettorio Ambrosiano is at bringing solace to the poor and homeless.
