Critic Reviews for Drei Sterne - Die Köche und die Sterne (Three Stars)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (7)

While Hachmeister acknowledges that Michelin rewards bold culinary innovation as well as refined traditional cuisine, he expresses a distrust of the star system.

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.

There's a lot about the Michelin Guide and the restaurant industry that Three Stars barely touches in its too-broad overview.

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.
