Storyline

Recently released from prison, French chef Jacques pursues an obsession -- to leave his past behind and work for the great British chef Victor Ellwood. He knows Victor had an affair with his mother and may even be his dad. Working for iron-fisted Victor is back-breaking, but his existence is softened by the presence of a curious girl living in the downstairs flat. As he falls in love with her, he realises she not only has an aversion to restaurants, but food of all kinds. Is her eating disorder a force too resilient for anything, even love to cure?

Delicious: another very good female Author.
3 October 2015 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I'm shocked by how many excellent female Authors are around these days. I won't make any names because they are already an army and I don't want to forget someone or give the impression I'm giving rates, which is something I'm not even remotely qualified for.

Feminine point of view is overwhelmingly interesting to me.

This film is good: it's a love story. Simple plot, made on a low budget but you won't notice because it has fine particulars: the fighting in the alley, very realistic; high quality images (see how Waterloo Station fills the eyes); perfect narrative balance and a very good, really convincing acting.

It's a comedy, not a lecture about eating disorders. If you don't like the genre you won't like the film. But if you like this kind of flicks, I guess you'll be nicely entertained.
