‘A TASTE OF HUNGER’ WHAT WOULD YOU SACRIFICE FOR A MICHELIN STAR?
In the refined restaurant business, it’s all about the mighty Michelin star. Such a sensational star can make or break a chef’s career and secure a restaurant’s position in the gourmet food world.
So, a film about the quest for a Michelin star can be quite compelling. Popular movies that have hit upon the subject include The Hundred-Foot Journey and Burnt. And now, Magnolia Pictures’ Dutch film A Taste of Hungeroffers drama, passion and sensational scandal as a married pair of restaurateurs will do whatever it takes for the famed and coveted star.
Starring “Game of Thrones” heartthrob Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Kathrine Greis-Rosenthal (A Fortunate Man), A Taste of Hunger follows a Copenhagen power couple who sacrifice everything to achieve the highest possible accolade in the culinary world—a Michelin star.
Foodies will love the carefully crafted food shots. The colors are vibrant and the plates look magical. And just as eye-popping are the powerful performances in this tasty treat of a drama.
A film by Christoffer Boe, A Taste of Hunger offers all the ingredients of a gripping family drama, sexiness, lust and infidelity. It starts off with light bites of tantalizing food images then delves into the meaty drama before it’s delicious dessert of a payoff.
