  1. Galou's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    Intéressant de passer en cuisine pour découvrir le quotidien de ce restaurant pas comme les autres.

  2. Eugénie's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    Un savoir-faire artistique, une grande solitude à plusieurs.

  3. bessede's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    Dingue ! Passionnant, pas une seconde d'ennui à suivre ces artistes des fourneaux, ou plutôt de la pipette...Dingue !

  4. Clarisse Lemaitre's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    Documentaire pointu et précis, à l'image de son sujet, qui laisse néanmoins échapper la saveur et le but initial: l'émotion.

  5. CaÏn Kââ's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    C'est bien autre chose que de la cuisine gastronomique, même très élaborée : c'est une performance artistique (et scientifique), produite par une équipe (plus de chefs cuisiniers que de clients), chorégraphiée dans l'espace – du lab au restaurant à la table à l'assiette – et dans le temps – annuel, saisonnier, journalier, enfin du repas lui-même. Une utopie fourriériste. Le restaurant devrait rouvrir en 2018…

    il faut aimer regarder de la nourriture sans la gouter, l'ennui total des plans rigides et sans grâce. ferran a bien l'air fou mais ça ne me donne pas envie d'y gouter !!! ennui assuré

  7. BUTTAUD's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    Très intéressant sur cette cuisine d'artistes mais hélas on ne peut pas faire du cinéma avec tout. En regardant le film pas un instant on a envie de goûter les plats dont on nous parle. Dommage.

    Retrato del proceso creativo

  10. Andreas Jonsson's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    For those interested in the cooking itself. No-nonsense extended clips of the chefs at work, both during methodical investigations in the laboratory and at the restaurant. Simple but effective story arch following a full cycle at El Bulli, with a magnificently understated 30+ course ending.

  11. Hendrik Busse's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    Very interesting if you are into molecular cuisine or food in general. Could have benefitted from a bit more info about Ferran Adria and his cooks on a more personal level.

  13. dudewiththeface's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    Ferran Adrià recently asked a crowd, "What is wine?" After some silence, "A drink?" someone responded from the crowd. He lit up and replies back with, “Maybe it is a drink if I put it in a cup. But what if I make it into a sauce and cook with it? What if I turn the wine into ice cream? What is it then?” While some call his restaurant pretentious, I call it inspiring, and there isn't a better glimpse into his world..

  14. anarresti's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    A chance to see the creative process of the team of one of the most prestigious and inovative restaurants in the world. We get to see the development of new courses, as experiments in a lab, during the months the restaurants is closed, up to the point they are taught by the chefs to the cooks, and then first served to the excited clients. Captures in proximity, the process, the conversations, the complexity, the art.

  15. Max Gould-Meisel's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    This immersive, double-door entrance into the hall of food creation turns its lens on the micro experimentation in flavor. There is incredible subtlety in the dishes, the ingredients and the communication between chefs. On a macro level, the institution of El Bulli leaves others wanting: other restaurants their tenacity, other chefs their ingenuity, and leaves other patrons their dishes. Delicious doc.

  16. Nicholas Kohut's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    Incredible look into the world of experimental food. The amount of research and development that goes into developing El Bulli's menu up to and into their restaurant season is remarkable.

  17. jim in austin's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    These guys are boutique food chemists not dissimilar to those designing more mundane breakfast cereals and fried snacks for industry, the major difference being how much the consumer is willing to pay for the end result. Myself, I would only be interested if there were free samples...

  18. Alexine Chanel's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    i thought it was a very mediocre documentary on cooking, WAY too much editing, no story line or so slow... i could make it past the first third. there have been MUCH better documentaries on gastronomy! total thumb down.

  20. Mugino's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    Nouvelle cuisine or molecular gastronomy is not everyone's cup of tea. But for those open to sensory exploration, witnessing the toil and wonder of the creative process at Adrià's lab is a treat. Led by the industrious head chef Oriol Castro, the failures are just as illuminating as the flashes of ingenuity. El Bulli may have closed its doors, but Wetzel's film inspires further experimentation in our own kitchens.

  21. filipequintans's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    Is this for real? A waste of film (and talent to cook real food).

  22. Kristen Livera's rating of the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

    Tactless consideration when illustrating haute cuisine to neglect that the eye has a fine palette as well
