A master chef, Kate, lives her life like she runs the kitchen at upscale 22 Bleecker Restaurant in Manhattan--with a no-nonsense intensity that both captivates and intimidates everyone around her. With breathtaking precision, she powers through each hectic shift, coordinating hundreds of meals, preparing delicate sauces, seasoning and simmering each dish to absolute perfection.Written by
Yes, how any of you can dare compare a miss Zeta- Jones ( a very beautiful woman, I agree, but a wax model) with a real actress like Martina Gedeck ??? Martina is so real in this film that she can make you believe that the word beauty has been invented for her. Beautiful ?? Not really, but a real actress with an infinite range (and, yes, thank you very much, I have seen the Baader Meinhof complex !). You know who she reminds me of ? Nathalie Baye, another understated, unassuming actress who I also saw when she began, and becomes more and more beautiful as she ages. Are you so blind that you cannot make the difference between the real thing and a cardboard copy? Mostly MARTHA is ACTING with a big A and no matter how many people are too stupid or too blind to see the truth, it cannot be hidden.
