Unlike Hortense's flavorful cooking, Haute Cuisine is aggressively bland. It's the type of French film that you'd recommend to people who think they don't like French films for being arty.

When a movie's high-stakes moment is whether a cream cheese should be considered dessert, it's hard not to motion for the check.

September 26, 2013
A feature-length cooking show with some biographical details thrown in for good measure.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 19, 2013
A reserved, très simple tale that raises the occasional smile and tummy rumble but keeps hiccuping because of the drawn-out parallel story about her subsequent tour of duty.

Heaven help us. More food porn.

Superficialmente eficaz, mas sem personalidade ou ponto de vista que o justifiquem plenamente como obra.

If you love France and food, separately or in combination, you will almost certainly forgive Christian Vincent's workmanlike direction, the tedious score, and the near-total absence of dramatic conflict.

Offers all the ingredients for a great feast of enticing visions and thematic concerns, only to have them be prepared, plated, and served with the grace of Elmer Fudd.

"Haute Cuisine" is a bonbon, not of a full-course meal.

Those with a yen for food porn (especially truffle fetishists) will feast. All others may want to order something else off the menu.

Narrowness of focus keeps the movie from becoming bloated with self-importance, but it also leaves it feeling a little inconsequential-more of a pleasing snack than a satisfying meal.

Feels slightly over-egged is with the script's repeated mantra of the importance of farm fresh ingredients.

A whimsical view of the woman who fuelled the corridors of power in France with culinary common sense.

Ms. Frot brings a sympathetic mix of determination and passion to Hortense, who dedicates herself to making dishes that suit the president.

Captures a boisterous sense of life at the Palace. Above all, the film conveys the essence of a strong woman whose love for the land, its produce and creation of good food is an inspiration in itself
April 20, 2013
An engaging enough film, with a few special moments amidst the procedural aspects; serious cooking always fascinates us foodies, and Hortense has a few appetizing and unique dishes with which to tempt us
September 27, 2013
A pleasant dramedy inspired by a true story.

With a title like Haute Cuisine, one can expect a high degree of gastronomic titillation. On that score, the film delivers.

This souffle of a film is kept aloft by a terrific performance from Frot, all no-nonsense in the kitchen, cleavering her way through bureaucracy and political pettiness, and by the succulently photographed edible creations.
