Best food movie since "Babette's Feast", 19 June 2012
Author: evening1 from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I'd never heard of this man, or his restaurant, and I live here in NYC, but this movie really leaves me wishing I had someone to experience Corton with.

"I'm not a nut case. I'm an artist," Paul says early in the film, and that's the theme here...He expresses himself, down to his signature, in food, and along the way he both inspires and rides herd on his apostle-like staff.

"What stories am I telling here?" he asks as he composes a tasting menu and it's not even a tad pretentious. You want to savor his tales.

The filmmaker seduces you in this portrait. You come to feel grateful to Drew Nierpont for having given Paul a berth and you are happy for the chef when he finds a cheerful and understanding woman to love.

You rejoice with him when he gets his three stars from the Times and you wind up wishing him the best as he aspires to Michelin. He certainly has earned it...

And now I know the place for my next super, extra-special occasion.
