1885. Peerless cook Eugenie has worked for the famous gourmet Dodin for the last 20 years. As time goes by, the practice of gastronomy and mutual admiration turns into a romantic relationship. Their association gives rise to dishes, one more delicious than the next, concoctions that confound even the world’s most illustrious chefs. Reinventing a classic strain of French cinema, Trần Anh Hùng serves up an intense and poetic celebration of the pleasure of the palate, mind and heart.
Having won the Best Director Award at the Cannes Film Festival this year, The Taste of Things has been selected to represent France at the 2024 Academy Awards.
