Vanity Piece
17 September 2012 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

I went to this film because I enjoy cooking and learning about how successful chefs prepare food and run their restaurants. What I saw was a vanity piece that had little to do with either. The movie is divided into seasons, which are virtually indistinguishable and make you wish the year would pass quickly. You'll view many model shots of pere and fils Bras (close-up, distance, various angles) and their restaurants and surrounding countryside, unaccompanied by narrative. In one rare food-related scene the duo are commiserating over a fussy dish as though it were a difficult problem in theoretical physics. The film has a staged quality lacking in naturalness and spontaneity. It should not have been released commercially and should be reserved for viewing by the Bras family and friends and potential investors in their enterprises.
