The Taste of Things

Set in France in 1889, the film follows the life of Dodin Bouffant (Benoît Magimel) as a chef living with his personal cook and lover Eugénie (Juliette Binoche). They share a long history of gastronomy and love but Eugénie refuses to marry Dodin, so the food lover decides to do something he has never done before: cook for her.

"A mouth watering banquet of full-fat foodie cinema." -Daily Telegraph

“Lusciously tender." -Variety

"Food is a gift of love here - and romance courses through this delightful film." -Time Out

"Pushes the notion of bonding through vittles a step further. Certain dishes are so inscribed by their creators that they act as memory itself, says the film, a sentiment that leaves a beautiful after-taste." -Indiewire
