In a simple yet humorous fashion, "Spaghetti for Two" illustrates how prejudices and racism can lead to catastrophe. Rather than pointing an accusatory finger, the episode is depicted as one in which anyone could find themselves - for who has not at some point been guilty of labeling somebody as something, without thinking twice?
The film fuses the genres of the situation drama with comedy, working as a harmonious symphony bursting with imagery and symbolism. It contains timeless, placeless materiel relevant across generations and is speckled with everyday characters endowed with exaggerated cliches. The public is taken on a journey of humor and self-irony into the realistic, yet fairytale style little world of an ordinary man and his own tics and peculiar quirks who is pointed back in the right direction by a slight nudge of fate. Composed especially for the film and arranged with classical instruments, the score brings together the rich collage of images to create a film rich in nuances that manages to be both deeply meaningful and entertaining.
