Movie Info

A creative journey into the unique mind of René Redzepi. How did Redzepi manage to revolutionize the entire world of gastronomy, inventing the alphabet and vocabulary that would infuse newfound pedigree to Nordic cuisine and establish a new edible world while radically changing the image of the modern chef? His story has the feel of a classic fairy tale: the ugly duckling transformed into a majestic swan, who now reigns over the realm of modern gourmet cuisine. But beneath the polished surface, cracks appear in the form of old wounds. 2013 stands as the worst year in René Redzepi's career. We follow him as he fights his way back to the top, reinventing NOMA and reclaiming the title of best restaurant in the world in 2014 for the fourth time.

The end result is a revealing portrait of an artist wholly dedicated to his art.

January 7, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Less a documentary than a glittering souvenir, but it's still a record of a legend.

December 17, 2015 | Full Review…

I've never seen a restaurant documentary that seemed less interested in showing the joy of food.

December 16, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Deschamps never ventures below the surface of Redzepi's wildly successful experiment, and while the pictures are pretty, no one judges food on appearance alone.

December 15, 2015 | Full Review…

Combining fly-on-the-wall observations, talking heads and artistic cutaways, there is enough for everyone's tastes.

February 16, 2017 | Full Review…

Foremost in this fly-on-the-wall report is the fascinating contradiction of Redzepi himself, whose abrasive perfectionism appears to be prompted by the prejudice he suffered in his youth after his family moved to Denmark from humble roots in Macedonia.
