So very, very dull.
21 April 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Step Up To The Plate" ("Entre les Bras") is a documentary about the handing over, gradually, of the reigns of Michel Bras' restaurant over to his son, Sebastian. For the most part, it's a simple style film--and is divided into segments entitled "Spring", "Summer", "Fall" and "Winter". But, aside from that, there doesn't appear to be a lot of structure to the film. It simply shows them making dishes and the father commenting on the son's work.

While I love cooking films like "Mostly Martha", "Babbette's Feast" and "The Big Night", I was amazed how bored I was with "Entre les Bras". Bored....completely. It's because the film seemed very slow and lifeless. It also offered no insight into the Bras and I felt I knew next to nothing about them as a result of the film. Overall, a big letdown.
