All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (3)

  • 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.

    February 22, 2008 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • An amiable, but underpowered and sentimental film.

    March 16, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The solid performances from Ostendorf and Roche can't disguise the awkward tonal shifts contained in the final stretches of this sentimental story.

  • 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.
