Film "Haute Cuisine" 2013-11-11 19:00:00
Description

HAUTE CUISINE

Director: Christian Vincent  

France, 2012, 95 min; French with subtitles

BASED ON A DELICIOUSLY TRUE STORY!

For a sumptuous experience sure to whet any cinematic appetite, there’s no better place than the Elysée Palace to sample the culinary delights of France. “Haute Cuisine,” based on the real-life story of the personal chef to former French President François Mitterrand in the late 1980s, takes the viewer on a foodlover’s holiday through the most mouthwatering creations imaginable.

Catherine Frot plays Hortense, a provincial chef and restaurant owner who is plucked from obscurity to become the personal cook for M. le Président, who has a craving for the traditional regional dishes of his youth.

As the rustic Hortense tries to fit in with the palace’s urbane staff and chafes against the bureaucracy and casual sexism she faces each day, director Christian Vincent lets his roving camera linger over the chef’s delectable creations, described in detail and conjured by her staff with utmost care. Be sure not to watch it on an empty stomach.  –Seattle International Film Festival
