Movie Reviews

Dark comedy with alternating light and heavy dialog.
M. Cronin | Portland, Oregon | 09/02/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"John Hurt and Vanessa Redgrave have only small but integral parts in this charming movie that Emma de Caunes as Fifi dominates with wit and style. She's a brilliant chef who's hiding out in a diner because she's afraid and she's not even sure what she's afraid of. The other characters are everything from profound to quirky and even insane.
Katherine who delivers the food Fifi makes seeks moments of solitude and asks deep questions of total strangers. There's a chef in a neighboring restaurant who's created a rather questionable dish in revenge for being betrayed. The other characters comprise sound boards for Fifi and Katherine as they both seek to find answers by asking odd and sometimes profound questions.
This movie made me smile often and left me trying to answer the questions this movie asked."
