Guest House Paradiso (1999)

Film details


Comedy. Various trials and tribulations ensue at the hotel of the title, a rundown folly situated frighteningly near a nuclear power station. The hotel is run by a particularly offensive couple of men known as Richie and Eddie. These two delight in spending their time bullying guests when not poisoning them with the horrific meals they serve them. The situation is exacerbated by the arrival of Gina, an Italian movie star, trying to hide from the paparazzi, and her lover, who is on the run from the police. Things can only get worse - as they do when Richie serves radioactive fish to the hotel guests.
