Salmon for Corleone, a cultural road movie in 11 episodes of 40 minutes, is produced for Canvas, the quality channel of VRT. Herman, an enthusiastic bachelor who wants to marry the Sicilian Donna de Parta, daughter of Don de Parta in the village of Corleone, presents the program. The dowry, a real (fresh!) Norwegian Salmon, turns into a quest throughout Europe. Apart from the narrative romantic aspect, Salmon for Corleone is really a travel programme in which travelling is often as important as stopping at sights, cultural highlights, events and people. On the road we discover the human side of the local culture. Salmon for Corleone is an alternative journey through Europe. Salmon for Corleone is an unusual travel programme : stripping Europe from its stereotyped tourist traps, it puts the continent in a totally different spotlight.
