Mediocre but pleasant
11 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

It is a story about events related to a chef, his work, his kitchen and a young associate. There are the usual sorts of back stories, but nothing elaborate.

In fact, "nothing elaborate" is probably a good way to describe this movie.

There are few aspects that had me actually laughing - mostly the scene with the 'Japanese' customers. The rest raised a few smiles along the way. It was a pleasant passing of time.

The best part of the movie was the appearance of an actress named Rebecca Miquel as Carole. Stunning.

If you want to laugh at events in the kitchen you would be much better off watch the TV series Whites.
