Official 96th Oscar Shortlist Selection: INTERNATIONAL FEATURE FILM.

“A mouth watering banquet of full-fat foodie cinema.”
-Daily Telegraph

“…lusciously tender…”

“Food is a gift of love here – and romance courses through this delightful film.”
-Time Out

“a celebration of people’s desire for everything that’s beautiful and fleeting in life.”
-Slant Magazine

“pushes the notion of bonding through vittles a step further. Certain dishes are so inscribed by their creators that they act as memory itself, says the film, a sentiment that leaves a beautiful after-taste.”
