Sunday Supper

2023 has gifted us with two major additions to the growing canon of Great Films About Food, each in direct conversation with each other. The great observational documentarian Frederick Wiseman’s 4-hour immersion into the operation and output of a three-star Michelin restaurant in rural France, MENUS-PLAISIR LES TROISGROS (Dec 31-Jan 1), is an extension of the pioneering gourmet innovations on display in Trân Anh Hùng’s sumptuous period drama THE TASTE OF THINGS (opening Feb 14). Folded between these bookends is a five-course feast from the Greatest Films About Food canon. Set yourselves some dinner plans and join us on Sunday nights.

THE TASTE OF THINGS

Destined to be remembered as one of the great films about the meaning, texture and experience of food, this sumptuous, exceptionally well-crafted work, set in late 19th-century France, stars Juliette Binoche and Benoît Magimel as Eugénie, a cook, and Dodin, the gourmet chef she has been working with for 20 years.

Esteemed documentarian Frederick Wiseman’s latest is a food-lover’s heaven — a long, behind-the-scenes excursion into the world of France’s venerable restaurant La Maison Troisgros, which has held three Michelin stars for more than five decades. A perfect film to end the year, or to start a new one. Post-film dinner plans are highly recommended.
