Winner of the Best Director award at Cannes for Tran Ann Hung, (The Scent of Green Papya)  The Taste Of Things is set in 1884 andwill be every casual French film lovers no 1 go-to.

Eugenie, an esteemed cook, has been working for over the last 20 years for Dodin, a fine gourmet.  Their bond turns into a romance and gives rise to dishes that impress even the world’s most illustrious chefs. When Dodin is faced with Eugenie’s reluctance to commit  he starts to cook for her.

Since premiering at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, The Taste of Things has whetted appetites and tugged at heart strings all over the world. This  sensual adaptation of Marcel Rouff’s classic 1924 novel The Life and Passion of Dodin-Bouffant, Gourmet, blends cooking with romantic love and is aimed at the heart and the stomach.

Set in 1885,  Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche (The English Patient) plays Eugénie, a renowned cook with no equal. Previous Cannes Film Festival Best Actor winner Benoît Magimel (The Piano Teacher) is Dodin, a brilliant epicure whose ideas for recipes when combined with Eugénie’s talents, create culinary magic. The talented duo form a partnership that extends beyond the kitchen, establishing a friendship that occasionally evolves into something more. Can Dodin’s outstanding culinary instincts and desire for a deeper connection persuade Eugénie to marry him?

Both instructive and lovingly-captured throughout, this film reminds us that traditional French cuisine has earned its prestigious place on the world stage, thanks to the dedication, care, time and love it demands.
