A pleasurable, if drama-free portrait of French chef Michel Bras as he begins the handover of his three-star Michelin restaurant to his son, over the course of four seasons.
Lacoste threatens to lose his audience several times with the deliberate pacing of his doc, which takes too long to get things to the table in most cases.
A cerebral, dirge-paced outline of a father-son dynamic that asks the audience to fill in too many narrative and emotional gaps.
It's an intimate and immaculate film, modest in its goals and greatly affecting.
It's pretty delicious.
The second shot alone makes the ensuing 80 or so minutes even more enjoyable.
More food porn...Though the celebrity status accorded chefs has gone way out of control, this is actually not a bad little documentary.
An intimate, immaculate doco that ends up a stirring but unsentimental meditation on tradition and family.
The film attempts to tell the story of father Michel handing over his restaurant business to son Sébastien, but it makes a botch of it
Paul Lacoste's documentary about the gastronomic lifestyle of the Bras family... explores the men beyond their reputations in the world of fine cuisine, where Michelin Stars are priceless diamonds on a dark and starless night
Culinary idolatry where the camera takes up residence in the kitchen of a world-renowned chef to gaze in awe.
There are some interesting father/son dynamic moments in the film that give it some merit. But I thought JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI, which was released earlier this year, was much more focused and pretty much the same story.
A delightful story of the change over of a restaurant from father to son. I could sit and watch the goings on in a top kitchen for ages. The attention to detail and taste is absolutely fascinating.
