Critic Reviews for Food of Love
This is mild-mannered, been-there material given a pedestrian spin by a director who needed a touch of the flamboyant, the outrageous.
The performances and tight direction from Ventura Pons keep the film from descending into cheap melodrama.
Plays like a glossy melodrama that occasionally verges on camp.
It's the extra layer that makes this one, the movie's understanding of how disillusion and inner compromise can gradually separate a young artist from his divine spark.
I suspect that there are more interesting ways of dealing with the subject.
Audience Reviews for Food of Love
I really enjoyed this film. There were many flaws though. The acting seemed disjointed, especially the lead character. The mother was really way over the top, I wish she would have been just a little more tame. The ending was really way open. So, much so that I almost rated this lower
Fair overall although I don't like the film turning from quite a decent homo love story into some kind of coming-of-age/ coming-out cliche from the middle. And the ending was so abruptly & confusingly wrapped up. Kevin Bishop is wonderful & properly fits for his character. Juliet Stevenson is good as always too. And Paul Rhys... wow... his face was so heavily made up.
Once the excellent Rhys and Corunder are off-screen, the film's overall staginess and the inconsistent work of the supporting cast become glaringly apparent.
