Storyline

"Three Stars" is set in an alien and exclusive world, withdrawn from most of us: the highly stylized gourmet restaurants and their often cramped and noisy kitchens. Focusing on nine Michelin starred chefs from three continents, skilled both in charming small talk with their guests and a gruff commanding tone towards their kitchen brigades. The film depicts the everyday life behind the scenes. Award-winning filmmaker Lutz Hachmeister's was privileged to observe the work of nine head chefs with stars in the Michelin Guide, cooking in France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark, but also in the US and Japan. They are not only working in luxurious restaurants, but also in simple rural guest houses, rustic family farmhouses or profit-oriented hotel eateries. Hachmeister's main interest lies in the personality of the one, two, or three star chefs: Who are these men (and few women) that work 14 hours a day for decades to become master chefs? And most of all: Is it all really ... Written by HMR Produktion

What It Means To Be a Three Star Michelin Chef
29 December 2011 | by film_ophileSee all my reviews

Tonight I saw two excellent food documentaries at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts (MFA).The second was "El Bulli".Of the 2 films, I think "Three Stars" by Lutz Hachmeister (2011, 83 min.) was the superior one. It focused on 10 Michelin 3 Star restaurants in Scandinavia, Europe, Japan and the U.S., their chefs, staff and environment. Passion was the operative word for all of these chefs, with focus, commitment, excitement and exhaustion all sharing the mix. Extremely well edited, i learned a great deal from the film. Because it tried to cover a great deal of ground, it was not able to answer all the questions you might have, but it did manage to cover many of the angles involved with achieving and maintaining the success that these talented chefs have achieved.Similar to "Danny Meyer, the Restaurateur",but with an international scope, Three Stars will undoubtedly give you a greater appreciation for what goes into giving you a memorable evening the next time you dine at a great restaurant.
