Haute Cuisine Reviews

Jay Stone

It's mouth-watering, but not exactly nutritious.

With a title like Haute Cuisine, one can expect a high degree of gastronomic titillation. On that score, the film delivers.

"Haute Cuisine" has no grand conflict or important message or really anything much that you'll remember past dinnertime, but it has abundant charm and it leaves you hungry, which is all we ask of a food movie.

Haute Cuisine is an epicurean dream where the dishes conjured up by the characters are as essential to the experience as the characters themselves.

Unlike Hortense's flavorful cooking, Haute Cuisine is aggressively bland. It's the type of French film that you'd recommend to people who think they don't like French films for being arty.

A small pleasure, especially for those of us who love our "food movies."

A marvelous performance by Catherine Frot as Le President's private cook.

"Haute Cuisine" is a bonbon, not of a full-course meal.

A feature-length cooking show with some biographical details thrown in for good measure.

If you love France and food, separately or in combination, you will almost certainly forgive Christian Vincent's workmanlike direction, the tedious score, and the near-total absence of dramatic conflict.

This movie keeps up a vigorous pace and carries you along on the force of its self-confidence.

Ms. Frot brings a sympathetic mix of determination and passion to Hortense, who dedicates herself to making dishes that suit the president.

A reserved, très simple tale that raises the occasional smile and tummy rumble but keeps hiccuping because of the drawn-out parallel story about her subsequent tour of duty.

Narrowness of focus keeps the movie from becoming bloated with self-importance, but it also leaves it feeling a little inconsequential-more of a pleasing snack than a satisfying meal.

Delicious in every way: a must for foodies, but also for anyone who wants to see beautiful work done on the screen, presented in the most prideful way.

Vincent seems to have consciously designed Haute Cuisine as a small movie...But that simplicity is a winning choice.

When a movie's high-stakes moment is whether a cream cheese should be considered dessert, it's hard not to motion for the check.

If the material lacks a distinctive flavor profile, its restraint is its strength. The focus on a woman's passionate hard work without need of marital-status back story is refreshing.

Those with a yen for food porn (especially truffle fetishists) will feast. All others may want to order something else off the menu.
