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.

For Emma de Caunes fans for sure
17 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

SHORT ORDER is a lot like a crass Jean-Pierre Jeunet film. It's filled with vignettes trying to link food to sex. So we have Jon Polito describing mending pizza dough in the same way he would touch a woman and we see a chef from behind furiously beating eggs and looking a lot like, well, you figure it out. There's also plenty of college freshman-level existential philosophizing, Moby Dick references, and allusions to classic Hollywood musicals. The movie is not all that overall, but it did confirm for me that Emma de Caunes is the most beautiful actress currently working, and co-star Cosma Shiva Hagen might be a pretty close second.
