Critic Reviews for Eden
As long as it's whimsically celebrating the ambiguous joys of cooking, writer-director Michael Hofmann's movie has charm and a sweetness verging on the tart.
An over-filled smorgasbord of sweet intentions. The saving grace is a modicum of spiteful, deadpan humour at dumbkopf Xaver's expense.
A love story of sorts, it's not a feel-good movie so much as feel-orgasmic-and-then-mildly-crestfallen movie. Like sex, like a good meal, like life.
Like Beauty and the Beast, Eden is a fairy tale about impossible love, but this beast, instead of a noble soul, has an insatiable appetite.
Two touching performances only partially compensate for a weak script that never seems interested in challenging the superb Bella Martha (Mostly Martha).
