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?

Serious Look at Borderline Insanity Involving Food
23 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

5.5 of 10. While there are comedic elements, many films can say that. This is a serious look at an eating disorder and borderline insanity involving infatuation with food as a cure for everything.

The more enjoyable elements that won't result in you potentially vomiting into a toilet involve issues of trust, introducing art into displaying food, homelessness, and the realities of restaurant work and apartment life.

The less enjoyable involve an old lady repeating clichés and introducing more melodrama than humor for the prototypical young adults trying to find a purpose for their life.

Not quite up to the requirements of a delicious film, but worth a taste.
