A bit like the classic Italian movies of the 60's. A bit like 'Damage'. Really shows its originality at the end. So much attention to detail. So many styles. I think the ending is polarizing, and for me it made the movie richer.
Close to perfection. Reminiscent of the great Italian cinema from the 50s and 60s. Also one of the few films that deals with food in a significant way. Food is love, love is food for soul. Both are emotional, can shatter expectations and change your being. Essential.
An epic love story from the first frame to the last, the first note to the last, this film has a huge cinematic and emotional vocabulary like no other, where every character is so well developed and every sub plot is seamlessly and beautifully woven, into one of the most moving tales of forbidden love and courage, to stay true to the self until death.
