1880s France. For over 20 years skilled cook Eugénie (Binoche) has worked for gourmet chef Dodin (Magimel), with the two living under the same roof. As they reach middle-age, they can no longer deny that their professional relationship and shared passion for cooking has become something more. But Eugénie wants to keep her independence, and refuses Dodin’s numerous marriage proposals. He decides to convince her to change her mind, by finally cooking a meal just for her…

This latest film from French-Vietnamese director Trần (Oscar-nominated The Scent of Green Papaya) is both a culinary and romantic delight. With guidance from French chef Pierre Gagnaire, Trần captures the culinary artistry that produce the delicious dishes we see on-screen in exquisite detail.

Winner of Best Director at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival.

“★★★★ … a gastronomic feast so rich and romantic, it’ll leave you woozy.” - Time Out

“★★★★ This is a film that builds to its poignant moments but not in a sentimental way. Love here is all about putting in the effort and tasting the sweet result of that, which though it may not last forever in the moment, will always be a feast for the memory.” - Eye For Film
