The Genie in a Tin of Ravioli

ABOUT THE FILM

Armand works on the assembly line of a tinned pasta factory. One evening he opens up a tin of ravioli for dinner. Much to his surprise, a genie jumps out, promising to fulfill any two wishes. This is a Swiss version of “Aladdin’s Lamp” that has the genie popping out of a tin. The genie looks odd but is actually highly skilled. The face of the genie trying to return to the can after finishing his task will produce titters.

かわいい! 何ともほのぼのした世界が感動的でした。 観ながら、「自分なら何の願いを?」と考えていましたが、アルマンドの欲のない平和的な願い事を見て、反省しました。

It makes me feel comfortable and relaxing. Good! By the way, in Switzerland, people usually finish their work on time? No over-time work?
