"It was the morning of the 12th of December 1994"....
and so begins The Pasta Twist, a story of a leisurely day in the
life of the wanna-be Italian gangsters, the Marzetti brothers..
The brothers call each other on their early 90's mobile phones
and arrange to meet up for a game of cards.. The card game doesn't
last too long however as they just can't resist rounding of their
perfect day of leisure with a quick dance in the street... The
Apart from one opening line of dialogue, the film tells the days
events through the visuals and the music alone.
As well as the card game and the closing dance, the brothers are
also shown light-heartedly sparring with one another in the streets,
having a communal smoke, and enjoying further use of their mobile
phones (no doubt on a call with the Godfather of the Midlands).

The Pasta Twist
The Marzetti Brothers make an appearance in the 1996 versions
of "Where's The Money, Ronnie?", although only Paul
Anderson reprises his role of Zico Marzetti.
The card game in this film is referred to in the 1996 versions
of "Where's The Money, Ronnie?" during Zico Marzetti's
police interview where he says, "... it's good for the mental
arithmetic and alertness".
The music to which the Marzetti brothers perform the 'Pasta Twist'
dance at the end of the film is the music which is used for the
opening of the 1996 version of "Where's The Money, Ronnie?".
