Eden Reviews

February 22, 2008
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.

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.

Two touching performances only partially compensate for a weak script that never seems interested in challenging the superb Bella Martha (Mostly Martha).

An amiable, but underpowered and sentimental film.

A succulent yet chaste love story which leaves a pleasant enough taste, but you might not be inclined to tip.

Earns its place-setting with other foodie movies (Eat Drink Man Woman, Big Night, Tampopo) for the sheer volume of delectable dishes - which, in spite of the muddy lensing, will set stomachs pining.

The solid performances from Ostendorf and Roche can't disguise the awkward tonal shifts contained in the final stretches of this sentimental story.
March 14, 2007
An over-filled smorgasbord of sweet intentions. The saving grace is a modicum of spiteful, deadpan humour at dumbkopf Xaver's expense.

The solid central performances can't quite sustain the charm of this offbeat odd-couple romance as the action lapses into discordantly bleak absurdism.

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.
