Our take

Starring Juliette Binoche and Benoît Magimel as 1880s gourmands, this sensuous film is aromatic with romance and bathed in buttery luminosity. Adding the delights of cooking to the pleasures of cinema in a delectable mélange, Trần Anh Hùng won Best Director at Cannes for this belle époque treat.
