Sunday Short Movie: Pizza Verdi Starring Norm Lewis

An apparently everyday pizza delivery spirals into an edgy game of cat-and-mouse. Giuseppe Verdi provides the soundtrack for this quintessential New York tale. This is something that you must really not stop watching until the denouement as otherwise you will just not get it!

Pizza Verdi was written and directed by Gary Nadeau and stars Marie Zamora and Norm Lewis. In case you are wondering the song Caro Nome is from the opera Rigoletto. Ms Zamora does not simply mime the song either – she actually sings it! This reminds me a little of the old Roald Dahl TV series Tales of the Unexpected where we were consistently reminded to never judge a book by its cover!
