SCREENING IN HOUSTON OF ‘MOSTLY MARTHA – RICETTE D’AMORE’

 

Houston – The Consulates of Italy and Germany present the second and last movie of the German Italian Film Series, which will be screened on May 12 at 6.30 pm at the Italian Cultural and Community Center in Houston.

In a German restaurant, Chef Martha Klein is the undisputed supreme ruler of the kitchen staff and woe to any customer who would dare criticize her cooking. Her life is firmly centered around cooking which takes an obsessive level with stubborn single mindedness. Even when she is ordered to take therapy, she still constantly talks about her work and the iron clad control she relishes in her task.

All that changes when her sister dies in a car accident, leaving her 8 year old daughter, Lina. Martha takes her niece in and while making enquiries
  for her estranged father, she struggles to care for this stubbornly headstrong child. Meanwhile at work a new Italian chef named Mario is hired on, and Martha feels threatened by this unorthodox intruder.

The pressures of both her private life and work life combine to create a situation that will fundamentally call her attitudes and life choices into question while these interlopers into her life begin to profoundly change it.
