Fragment of great movie called "Big Night" (1996) by trio Stanley Tucci, Campbell Scott and Joseph Tropiano. It's story about two italian brothers running restaurant in America. This clip contains chapter "I Secondi" which is part of title big night party. Primo (Tony Shalhoub) and Secondo (Stanley Tucci) brings their's guest to cuisine ecstasy. Whole scene is accented by great Claudio Villa's song "Tic Ti, Tic Ta" (it was originally used in film, in this scene, it is not my edit). Party members are Pascal (Ian Holm), Gabriella (Isabella Rossellini), Phyllis (Minnie Driver), Ann (Allison Janney), Bob (Campbell Scott) and more. Christiano (Marc Anthony) it's brothers' uncommunicative adjunct.

I really love this movie, it's one of my favorites. Great spirit, great characters and fabulous acting! Directed by Tucci and Scott, script by Tucci and Tropiano. Main roles by Tucci, Shalhoub, Holm, Rossellini and Driver.

Big Night should have been nominated for Best Picture, and probably should have won.

a really fun movie about passion and food but also a really deep movie about the love-hate relationship between art and business

My mother was so thrilled when she heard this song when we went to see the movie. Unfortunately she is not around to hear this.

"This movie is not only about cooking. The relationship of the two brothers is much more important. Primo is an artist, he is living in his own little world and he doesn't care about anything else. Secondo is sick of being the second. He wants to change this. He dreams of beeing a great businessman. But for the americans he is just a stranger with a funny accent. He is begging his competitor for help, who takes the chance to ruin Secondo, so he can employe Primo. Secondo is the second again."

Shaloub and The Tucc, great acting. And Marc Anthony looks Sicilian.
