Il Mare e la Torta

The Sea and the Cake

It is not inconceivable that a film about Sicily will have il mare (the sea) in its title, but why should it have la torta (the cake)? Yet this slightly cryptic title leads us straigth into the world of Honetschläger: It is just like him to be of the opinion that the great Goethe wrote the most boring stories ever about Sicily, and yet to go on to allow the old German master to give him a guided tour. (Gertjan Zuilhof)
