Shortlisted for Best International Feature for the 2024 Academy Awards®

Set in France in 1889, the film follows the life of Dodin Bouffant (Benoît Magimel) as a chef living with his personal cook and lover Eugénie (Juliette Binoche). They share a long history of gastronomy and love but Eugénie refuses to marry Dodin, so the food lover decides to do something he has never done before: cook for her.

Winner of the award for Best Director at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival

"Food is a gift of love here – and romance courses through this delightful film."
Phil de Semlyen, Time Out
"Lingering on the tongue like a sip of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the film leaves one feeling a little drunk, desperately hungry and entirely alive."
Zachary Barnes, Wall Street Journal
