SHORT ORDER tells a story so vibrantly sumptuous each still could be served as its own meal. Amidst the quaint Parisian street night, Fifi Koko runs a petty short order diner. Although her name is famous in chef circles she has placed her uncanny culinary skills on the back burner as she falls prey to an existential quagmire that fears her talent shall not overcome the expectations her reputation has sown. The late hours play out as Fifi must face her talent and unrequited love for a friend, while a collective stream of colorful creatures of the night make through Fifi's consciousness to feed her with temptation, insight, and humor on the path of her life-defining decision.

A Beautiful Vignette of Life, Love, Beauty, and well...Fun.
Unfortunately, I was not aware of this movie until its DVD release in the States. However, I did know of the beautiful and talented Emma de Caunes and the other beauty Shiva. This movie was beautifully constructed to perfection and is a true masterpiece among cinemas best. It reminded me of films like The Last Minute, Russian Ark, Waking Life, The Science of Sleep, The Life Aquatic, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Thank you to all of the crew involved in the making f this cinematic masterpiece and I hope we see more films like this in the future.
