A Subtly Tasteful Love Story
31 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Eden is a story of friendship and love that blooms between a lonely world-class chef and a waitress whose family life is less than ideal. The two meet as the Gregor (the chef) begins to frequent the café in which Eden (the waitress) works. After a few encounters Gregor learns that Eden's daughter Leonie is having a birthday. Gregor makes Leonie a cake and it's a small taste of this gift that lures Eden further into Gregor's life. Eden begins to visit Gregor weekly at his restaurant where their friendship blossoms. At first the relationship benefits both as Gregor's recipes influence Eden's home life and Eden's presence inspires Gregor's cooking. I don't think to call their friendship a love affair is a stretch. Charlotte Roche and Josef Ostendorf put in strong performances in the main roles. Ostendorf especially puts forth an emotional performance and as wonderful as Roche is, it is Ostendorf who carries the movie. I didn't know much about the film going in but I am glad to have spent the time to watch it.
