Masked Mayhem on the Menu. 'Ristorante Immortale' by Floz Productions [review]
Bramwell, Murray Ross
MetadataShow full item record
The Ristorante Immortale is unlikely to get a listing in the Michelin Guide, or anywhere else for that matter. It has zany waiters, an accordion wielding cook, an endlessly hopeful owner and, it would seem, no customers at all. This restaurant is not so much immortal as in a state of limbo, running like crazy clockwork, every night the same, doomed to repeat its own history. The timing is crisp and the characterisations often touching. This the comedy of Jacques Tati, and Manuel in Fawlty Towers.
