Movie Info

Martha (Martina Gedeck) relies on her culinary skills as her primary means of communication. She lives for her work and presides with obsessive care over her spotless, precise kitchen. When a fateful accident leaves Lina (Maxime Foerste), her 8-year-old niece, in her care, Martha's orderly life begins to come undone. When the owner is consequently forced to bring in help, Martha and the new charming and carefree Italian chef (Sergio Castellitto) are instantly at odds.

    Yummy from beginning to end. Not only is Martha quirky to watch, but the food preparation alone is worth sitting through this movie. Sweet and stylish. Passionate. Heart warming.

    This was a great film, The one I rented had English Subtitles and was in German. It started out slow, but really picked up and was very funny. If your into subtitle Movies get this one or rent it, you will not be sorry.

    An intriguing movie. Martha is a chef in a upscale restaurant when one day she gets several surprises. Her sister tragically dies in a car accident while on her way to see her, and now must raise her eight year old niece Lina. Her boss hires an Italian sous-chef, and now must share the kitchen and all other responsibilities. On the suggestion of her boss, she sees a therapist weekly in hopes that she can curb and manage her anger. Martha must now accept the changes in her life. Great cast- Martina Gedeck, Sergio Castellitto, Maxime Foerste, August Zirner, Sibylle Canonica, Katja Studt, and Ulrich Thomsen. Worthy!
