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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Chuck Wilson
Village Voice
Top Critic IconTop Critic

Writer-director Christian Vincent and co-writer Étienne Comar, aided by Frot's quiet intensity, imbue Hortense's quest to pull off culinary miracles with an urgency that's almost absurdly compelling, and all the more entertaining for it.

Expect to see some lavish cooking in this movie based on the career of a French president's personal chef.

Catherine Foote, as Hortense, and the outstanding production - lensing, set design, costume, locations - are the stars of this interesting and informative movie.

This souffle of a film is kept aloft by a terrific performance from Frot, all no-nonsense in the kitchen, cleavering her way through bureaucracy and political pettiness, and by the succulently photographed edible creations.

Feels slightly over-egged is with the script's repeated mantra of the importance of farm fresh ingredients.

A whimsical view of the woman who fuelled the corridors of power in France with culinary common sense.

An engaging enough film, with a few special moments amidst the procedural aspects; serious cooking always fascinates us foodies, and Hortense has a few appetizing and unique dishes with which to tempt us
