The Sandwich Nazi

  • Directed by Lewis Bennet
  • Vancouver, 2015, 72 mins., English

We meet 50-something Salam Kahil in full (off)-color in his Vancouver delicatessen, where one sign says “Best Sandwiches in North America!!” while another warns “This deli contains coarse language and nudity.” “I’ve been treating my customers the same way for 26 years,” he shrugs, and it’s clear that his customers are used to it, enduring the constant onslaught of wincing vulgarity with varied hilarity, bewildered smiles and sometimes flat-out discomfort. But most of them know that beneath the bluster is a mile-wide generous side, an endearing personal history…and some of the best sandwiches they’ll ever eat.
