This tender tale of a specialist chef whose culinary skills are so profound that they provoke an almost-sexual response in his diners, was a huge hit in Germany and the winner of the Audience Award at the Rotterdam Film Festival. Striking up a friendship with a pretty young waitress, the cheerily corpulent gourmand begins to design a series of dishes that will transform her life. A beautifully-judged film, pitched between comedy, drama and romance, with food as the essential ingredient that binds its many charms together.
