Joseph S. Joseph Galante EN 2, section 42 3/17/10 Bob Giraldi’s Dinner Rush is an excellent film that depicts a single night in a hot New York City restaurant. The film follows a wide series of events as well as their affect on wide cast of characters. The main protagonists are the owner of the restaurant, Louis Cropa, his son and head chef Udo and the habitually gambling chef, Duncan. One of the major themes in the movie, similar to the film Golden Door, are that of a shifting sense of cultural identity from old word to new world. Although it is in a different context, the most direct representation of this takes the form of food as well as by those eating it. In an earlier scene we see a glimpse of what the restaurant would have been like in the old days, a shrine of Italian cooking shared with family and friends in a personal atmosphere.

When the movie first opens we see Louis around a table with friends and family
