If love was a flavour, it would be bittersweet: which is the taste that stuck to my mouth long after I floated out of Tran Anh Hung’s ultra-romantic, tragic film about two French cooks. For years, not a single film has given me the rush of falling inside a world your mind  must remind you is simply fiction.

The Taste of Things

25 MAY: 3 pm & 7 pm
145 Mins | France | Drama |


This is a film about food (so much wonderful food), and the relationship between a passionate gourmet Dodin (Benoit Magimel) and his assistant Eugenie (Juliette Binoche). Set in the Belle Epoque in France, the first 38 minutes takes place in a grand kitchen as we watch them at work and salivate profusely (don’t arrive hungry). Dodin has been in love with Eugenie for 20 years, and has proposed many times, but Eugenie always turns him down. This is a love story based on respect and tender care between two mature adults who can talk about their feelings without drama but need few words to convey the depth of their feelings. Director Tran Anh Hung has made a sumptuously beautiful film about food and relationships. What more could we want?
