  1. CafeGradiva's rating of the film A Touch of Spice

    2,9 / Impressive story and great cinematography. Good navigation between cliches cliffs, sometimes the film is a little damaged, here and there, by them. Memorable.

  2. dionysus67's rating of the film A Touch of Spice

    Box office success in Greece, Boulmetis' film mingles with skill collective memory after historical events (the 1964 expulsion of Greeks from Constantinople) transform the fate of individual lives and open wounds that will never heal. All this is told with conventional cinematic technique rendering food the connecting link between individual memory and lost community. Not uninteresting, yet cinematically unrewarding.

  3. jananonloso's rating of the film A Touch of Spice

    Sometimes too much cliché and acting a little stiff at times. Culinary connection was very nice though.

  4. Philipp Reinke's rating of the film A Touch of Spice

    Leichte Kost, aber gut gewürzt. Etwas Drama, etwas Liebe und eine kleine Prise Humor.

  5. Laetitia's rating of the film A Touch of Spice

    It is nice to watch a movie about a culture which personally I didn't know an awful lot about. But the movie was quite cliché in the choice of its motives and narrative.

  6. padjo's rating of the film A Touch of Spice

    eine super film, unbedingt anschauen

  7. AdaRLD's rating of the film A Touch of Spice

    Interesting retelling of history, yet the storyline is a bit muddled. The second part, in Istanbul, is better.

  8. EEE333's rating of the film A Touch of Spice

    Kind of boring in visuals and storytelling. Even the sound design disappointed me.

  9. Koyo's rating of the film A Touch of Spice

    Amazing till the third quarter of the film - cheerful and entertaining storytelling- then it changes into somewhat like a badly filmed cinema paradiso. Nevertheless it's a lovely-spiced film that I'll remember.

  10. Hati Le's rating of the film A Touch of Spice

    I really enjoyed this film, it is visually very appealing (don't watch on an empty stomach). However, i thought that it got a bit ridiculous when the narrative shifted to present day Istanbul - why do the actors speak English all of a sudden? It takes away a lot of the character and charm that the child actors have been building up before. Will definitely remember to put cinnamon into my meatballs next time i cook.

  13. kopfkompass's rating of the film A Touch of Spice

    Wunderbar fotografiert, überaus appetitlich erzählt, aber für meinen Geschmack etwas zu lange Garzeit.

  14. mike's rating of the film A Touch of Spice

    A very beautiful film and a most excellent music soundtrack. A mix ot "Cinema paradiso" and "Como agua para chocolate".
