The Taste of Things

2024 Oscar Nominee for Best Int’l Feature Film!

Cook Eugenie (Juliette Binoche) and her boss Dodin (Benoît Magimel) grow fond of one another over 20 years, and their romance gives rise to dishes that impress even the world’s most illustrious chefs. When Dodin is faced with Eugenie’s reluctance to commit, he begins to cook for her. As epicurean as French haute cuisine, The Taste of Things indulges our palates with an exquisite seven-course love story for the soul. In French with English subtitles. (PG-13, 2h 25m)

“One of 2023′s best films, The Taste of Things is achingly romantic and devastatingly sad. You’ll spend the first two-thirds of this movie salivating, and the last third of it sobbing.” – Odie Henderson, Boston Globe

“You’d swear that you could smell, touch and, yes, taste the meals that are being prepared on screen before you. It’s like an epicurean magic trick.” – David Fear, Rolling Stone
