A glimpse behind the curtain of the restaurant business.
The film turns to look at the transparent people behind the industry; a look that illustrates service as a performance, sales as an art form, work shift as a rhythmic and well-timed dance of waiters and patrons.
To a large degree, this film serves as a metaphor for a capitalist world – exploitative and oppressive on one side of the screen, and indulgent and indifferent on its other side. Plenty, self-indulgence and extravagance versus hunger, competitiveness and drudgery.
"It's Wonderful" is a microcosm of power relations, frustrations and failures, presented to the viewer like one of the dishes on the menu, wrapped in food, alcohol and music.
