Eugenie and her boss Dodin grow fond of one another over 20 years, and their romance gives rise to dishes that impress even the world’s most illustrious chefs. When Dodin is faced with Eugenie’s reluctance to commit, he begins to cook for her. Juliette Binoche stars in this deliciously subversive tale of love in later life (Winner, Best Director, Cannes Film Festival, 2023)

Mark says:
“I’d already played “name the vegetable” – celeriac, parsnip, carrot, and the big, pale green, leafy thing – artichoke?
But seeing them eat an omelette, with a spoon. That was it, I was hooked… And now they’re cooking more. What is it going to be? Why is she doing that? And now they’re eating more. And more! I’m only watching and I’m fit to burst.

Like when a comedy can leave you more vulnerable to heartbreaking drama, once you’re drawn into this lush, gastronomic and visual feast, the human relationships feel more intense and affecting. 

Finally a couple of things to note, make sure you’ve had your tea before coming and be reassured that the film contains absolutely no football.”

In this irresistible French film, food is love. And a feast for the soul.
Dorothy Woodend, The Tyee.

A movie that gives you back something you didn’t realize you’d lost, Its pleasures run quiet and deep.
Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine.

Easily the most sensuous film of the year, tantalising your sense of taste and smell delectably. Plenty to savour here and the vivid culinary scenes are quite hypnotic.
