Hachmeister jumps from chef to chef, country to country, sampling little soundbites or chronicling the meticulous building of a blini on an asparagus stalk, with no clear structure to give the docu momentum.
Hachmeister has a bit of food porn to offer, but undistinguished cinematography makes this aspect less indulgent than it could have been.
A narrower focus might have helped. But serious foodies will chow down.
Hachmeister's understatement results in a narrative plateau somewhere in the last third of the film, and viewers who showed up hungry may become impatient.
[It] endeavors to educate by covering a lot of ground in its 90-plus minutes, which is certainly commendable, it's just not that satisfying.
Less a luxurious cinematic meal than a generous spread of snippets and tidbits, this feast for foodies features ten mostly European-based Michelin-awarded chefs.
There's a lot about the Michelin Guide and the restaurant industry that Three Stars barely touches in its too-broad overview.
