Beautiful, sensitive, imperfect. Brilliant use of gastronomy to allegorize the adaptation of humans to sensory deprivation. A love story in an a rather plausible apocalyptic frame. At its essence it reminds of It's All About Love by Thomas Vinterberg.
The world slowly descends into chaos as a mysterious disease begins to rob people of their senses, beginning with smell, then taste, then finally hearing and sight. Amidst all this, two people fall in love. Beautifully filmed and surprisingly effective, perhaps even more emotionally acute than Steven Soderbergh's CONTAGION. A lyrical and poetic vision of the end of the world.
