Movie Info

What happens when the world's most acclaimed restaurant picks up and moves halfway across the world? Named for just one of the many surprising dishes that René Redzepi serves at his esteemed Copenhagen foodie destination Noma (named "World's Best Restaurant" in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014), Ants on a Shrimpfollows the superstar chef and his team as they relocate to Japan to set up a five-week pop-up in Tokyo. But creating an all-new, fourteen-course menu foraged from local sources in an unfamiliar country presents unforeseen challenges-and may be a make-or-break moment for the risk-taking Redzepi's career. This cross-cultural culinary odyssey is both a behind-the-scenes look at a food world visionary and a mouthwatering showcase for some of the most adventurous cuisine on the planet.

If the title "Ants on a Shrimp" evokes the worst picnic ever, guess again.

Mr. Redzepi is a restless soul, and Maurice Dekkers's engaging "Ants on a Shrimp" follows him on an adventure that seems almost recklessly impulsive.

Like a well-executed fine-dining experience, this sleek documentary entertains, delights, and makes viewers comfortable without evident sweat.

As a film it may be flawed and a little uneven, but as food porn, Ants on a Shrimp has got enough chewable money shots to make even the most jaded of foodies salivate.

Aug 15, 2017 | Full Review…

Ants on a Shrimp is an intense film and, for a food flick, it's much more about the hard labour of cooking than the pure pleasure of dining.

Dec 2, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Well-edited and shot, but ultimately underwhelming and forgettable while suffering from style over substance
