Audience Reviews for Haute Cuisine

  • Oct 10, 2013
    A bon-bon of a film. It reminded me of Hyde Park on the Hudson in that nothing actually happens. But while Hyde Park dwelled on FDRs smarmy adulterous affairs, this one dwells on FRANCE! On French food in detail, beautifully photographed and lovingly (that's the only word to describe it) described. How the food is sourced, how the food is prepared, how much every one enjoys it! If there's a more pleasant scene in current film than the French president sitting down in a humble kitchen and enjoying an illicit meal of sliced truffles on buttered toast with a suitable red wine I don't know what it is. There is some conflict with the main kitchen and the boys who run the place, but it wasn't enough to actually call a plot, but that's not what you see a movie like this for. And make sure you have reservations at a good restaurant afterwards!

    Though enjoyable to watch, this film seems pointless and trivial, as it merely follows a woman in charge of preparing the meals for the President of France - and it never offers any real conflict to justify its existence.
