Rather than resort to dubbing or subtitling for release to other countries, the actors recorded lines in both French and English. See more »
The film was shoot in English and French simultaneously. In the French version Jason Lee recited his dialogues in French when he arrive to France, and just few of his lines were keep in English. The rest of the French cast spoke in French with just a few lines in English. In the English version Jason Lee spoke always in English with just a few lines and words in French. Eddy Mitchell, Irène Jacob, Isabelle Petit-Jacques and Sylvie Loeillet did alternate takes in English. A few takes were kept with the actors speaking on their native languages and later dubbed in French or English. See more »
I like movies about food and this is why I liked this move very much. I also loved Tampopo or instance, even more than this movie. Anyhow, its a movie about learning a trade, about falling in love, about discovering talent, and growing it. There is a lot of talk in this movie, great little conversations. If you think that Chefs are not like this, I can tell you, they are! I have worked with many a chef like this one. I was dragged by the ear trough the kitchen, pointed out where I left spots. I was hit with the flat side on knives, My hand was put on the grill, believe me the chef in this movie is not anything special, nor especially weird. But I loved the movie. Pieter
