Nice French comedy on the work of the personal chef of the president of France between 1988 and 1990. The movie is something like a joyous portrait, like the advertising poster for the cinemas, light but well directed.

I had to watch this movie in my French class and it's terrible. There's like no plot. A lady cooks for the president and it's kind of hard? What type of conflict is that?! It also gives the you the feeling that the most important thing the president does is the food that's cooked for him. Don't see this movie it sucks

Strong female cooking for French President. Tres bien! An entertaining, inspiring, and beautifully filmed movie.

I don't get the reviews that complain there is no conflict in this movie. It seems there must be man on man or man on environment conflict for the conflict to be recognized. There is a small conflict between the kitchen staff, but the biggest conflict is within Hortense herself. Here you have an extremely passionate woman, one deeply in love with food. She doesn't see it as a job, and she must choose between a role that she deems a great honour and being true to herself. I think it is a beautiful story. I loved it. I put it up there with other food favourites of mine such as Hundred Foot Journey. I'm a sucker for French food movies, and this one didn't disappoint.

To note: I find most French cuisine just too much and too.... complicated. But I enjoyed this little film about making tasty old fashioned home cooking for the president with power games and diets on the back ground. But the ending was a bit..... lame.

It appears that Haute Cuisine focused too much on making the audience hungry and forgot about the message it was trying to portray

Fun show, serious on the food (who isn't), some light comedy, personal standards, jealousy and common sense prevail. I liked the movie, Haute Cuisine.

Might read her book. Interesting life.

As far as storytelling chops goes, HAute Cuisine is a bon bon, not a full course meal. However, anyone who derives pleasure from watching beautiful work being done on the screen and presented in the most prideful way will enjoy much of this movie. And there is plenty of gastronomic titillation for French cuisine enthusiasts.

Too bad it lacks plot. The rest of it is delicious.

Interessante mai banale, anche se il tema lo lascerebbe supporre. Non decolla mai veramente, perņ.

Perfect example of how hard it can be for a woman in the culinary world. I really enjoyed how passionate they were towards every dish, down to the smallest detail.

Worth five stars for Catherine Frot's beautifully crafted and understated performance: but also nicely filmed, with plenty of humor, and lots of good food ideas!

loved what's her name. i think the french made her too charitable for a french woman though :)

A simple movie, but that's not necessarily bad. Not when it's the creme de la creme of food porn. Yum.
