The detail I remember is some scenes about him being invited to a rich kid's house for a dinner. He took homemade baklava as a gift, which was looked down upon.

Trying to remember a film I saw on television years ago. I was either German or Swiss and was about a heavyset man on a ski holiday.

Hope me!
