By patiently letting events play out past the easy and expected end-note, Frankel has fashioned a fine story out of what might have been merely a cautionary tale.
"King Georges" reminds us that a singular dining experience can often be the expression of a very singular personality, singular temperament, singular discipline.
The relationship between the young American and the old Frenchman is as rich as one of Perrier's sauces: the pupil and the teacher, the son and the father, the keen protégé and the stubborn classicist.
[A] poignant, funny and well-seasoned portrait of autumnal fervor.
"King Georges" feels stretched into feature length, but its ending neatly portrays a man with a fierce personal code who seems to have accepted change.
Frankel has a fine eye for telling detail, and the result, while sentimental, is as irresistible as the dessert cart.
Fun fare for foodies, especially those with a taste for classic French cuisine and nostalgia for the posh French restaurants that once dominated the culinary scene.
The vividly detailed behind-the-scenes glimpse of one of America's best kitchens, along with a holistic view of the title character, make King Georges a flavorful treat worth savoring.
Erika Frankel's documentary is finally revealed to be a story of prolonged adjustment to retirement, and a poignant illustration of sublimated redemption.
