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.

  • Ultimately this feels a bit too much like one long advertisement for the restaurant and misses an opportunity to develop a more probing thesis ...

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

  • 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.

    Dec 15, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Noma: My Perfect Storm doesn't reflect in its form chef Redzepi's obsession with food, which in this case turns out to be a fatal flaw. The film is too fixated on what's in his head to truly appreciate what he's making with his hands.
