"Gourmet Club" follows a doctor who belongs to a small but exclusive gourmet club, in which the five upper-class members take turns providing the main course, wagering as to who can identify a mystery exotic ingredient. Things get interesting when the doctor's gambling problem catches up with him. Desperate, he comes up with the idea to use a truly shocking mystery ingredient to fool his colleagues, but he gets more than he bargained for when the mystery meal has a surprising and powerful effect on the members.

An extremely well made short movie where Wall Street and Trading Places meet in a Finnish setting. Our star is a single doc whose gambling habits have taken him almost over the edge. Could he make it back in black in a dinner quiz where rich guys wonder what is the food on the table? Rescue comes as a surprise, and our smart antihero keeps his cool until the end. The movie also has a kind of Bud Fox, the young guy who wants to be a player. Again, Bud gets his nose red but this time he is a loser who doesn't even carry a mic.

The production is of high quality, scenes beautiful, and acting is extremely professional. The chef looks like a chef and not like an American actor who he really is. Old guys in the city club behave as if they would have lived there for ages. Overall, the movie made me wonder how come anyone can do this stuff in Finland - and why did they do this in Finnish?! I could easily imagine this movie selling in almost any part of the world.
