While big budget cinema has its pearls and is certainly entertaining, it's this kind of movie that is really fun to watch.

The budget on this one was small, I never doubted that (they even recycled several sets and re-spotted them to Detroid). The acting of the main cast was really touching and very convincing, even the almost surreal (first) dialog with the future "land-lord".

In general the movie is about love, about the love to your work, about the passion you put into it and it's about the love between people. While this main theme is spiced up with the whole goat cheese motif, it makes no mistake to point out that even if you are pursuing a vision, there are obstacles and you can fail altogether. But all ends well in the end.

I did not know what to expect of this movie at all. I was worried it might turn into one of those gourmet movies that make no sense at all, or simply fire up a barrage of comments on how food should be. But no! It's about the handiwork, the craft and art of food making. And that was likely the point where the movie got me. The naive characters, or so it would seem, and their pursuit of happiness is really heartwarming and touching, even though at times it's closer to a fairy-tale than to real life. But I do not give a goat's bleat. Except for a few minor glitches and unneeded slapstick parts it's a pearl among many worthless movies.
