Berlin Festival: Food Obsession Documentary ‘F***ing Perfect’ Set For Int’l Rollout

25 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Sergio Herman, F***ing Perfect,” a documentary about an obsessive Dutch chef which plays next month in the Berlin festival, is set for international distribution.

Rights to the film outside the Benelux region have been picked up by Amsterdam and Hong Kong-based sales company Fortissimo Films.

The company has handled international sales on other foodie docs including “Super Size Me,” “Jiro Dreams of Sushi,” and “Food Inc.”

“Sergio Herman” follows the ups and downs of a Herman who is one of only two cooks ever to obtain a 20/20 score from the Gault Et Millau food guide. But after reaching the top with his Oud Sluis restaurant, Herman decides that he has sacrificed too much and closes down the world famous eatery.

The film was directed by Willemiek Kluijfhout and produced by Netherlands-based Reinette van de Stadt through her Trueworks company.

Michael Keaton to Play Ray Kroc in the Story of McDonald’s

14 January 2015 6:27 PM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Last week, I gave Michael Keaton a hard time on this site for signing on to a blockbuster like Kong: Skull Island in the wake of his acclaimed comeback in Birdman. Now, on the eve of potentially his first Oscar nomination, Keaton is in the news for a meatier follow-up. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor is in talks to play Ray Kroc, the businessman who turned McDonald’s into the king of fast food restaurants and one of the biggest brands in the world.

However, the list that Rob and I made of 12 “great” movies released in January really only served to prove what we all know in our hearts: this month is awful. It wasn’t always awful, and it might not always be awful, but it’s been awful for a considerable amount »
