All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

I found "The Quest of Alain Ducasse," a near-hagiographic documentary on the celebrated chef, a less than satisfactory experience.

De Maistre makes the case that haute cuisine serves the same function as haute couture, creating an indelible experience while encouraging new ideas to filter through the industry.

If Ducasse is somewhat renowned for the simplicity of his dishes, for the way he can blend a few homegrown ingredients to achieve the perfect amalgam, then de Maistre definitely lathers the man with too much sauce.

Absorbing and cinematic, "The Quest of Alain Ducasse" offers the documentary equivalent of a memorable meal at one of the eponymous chef's three Michelin-starred restaurants.
