Critic Reviews for Politiki Kouzina (A Touch of Spice)
Since it's going to make you mighty hungry anyway, I'd suggest skipping A Touch of Spice and going straight to dinner.
A lovely sense of community and family permeates, and Corraface, a familiar face in many American and Greek productions, anchors it all. But don't expect to taste anything surprising.
The food metaphors pile up like layers of an overstuffed sandwich in A Touch of Spice.
The meals look ravishing; the film, however, leaves nothing but a sickly-sweet aftertaste.
A sentimental Greek offering that's been immensely popular in its home country but doesn't translate well.
A Touch of Spice has a few imaginative and amusing scenes as well as all the right ingredients of a romantic dramedy, but those ingredients merely simmer without coming to a boil. It often feels contrived and convoluted while its variety of ingredi
Audience Reviews for Politiki Kouzina (A Touch of Spice)
When I read some of the reviews written by the critics I have to say that NONE of them watched the movie to the end or they need a lesson in history... because there is no other logical explanation for bad review! This movie was made in 2003, not 2006 as stated on this site, and in it amazing Greek director Tassos Boulmetis is achieving carefully constructed emotional impact with a lot of sweet touches and unique Balkan sense of humor. The film is constructed like a meal; the segments are labeled "appetizer," "main course" and "dessert"... The Balkan society has the food related to everything: marriage, astronomy, even politics... and the director managed to recognize and transfer that recognition to the audience! (Quote: "If a diplomat smells of garlic, trouble is stirring.") Slow pace at the end is not tiresome, it adds up to the whole feeling of expectation... and I have to say, for me this is one of the best Greek movies ever (it is the most successful at the Greek Box Office)! Please, get it on a DVD and enjoy it!
