After its premiere at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, The Taste of Things has had mouths watering worldwide. This delicious adaptation of Marcel Rouff’s classic 1924 novel The Life and Passion of Dodin-Bouffant, Gourmet, is the perfect blend of cooking and romance. The film won director Tran Anh Hung the Best Director prize at Cannes. Set in 1885, Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche stars as Eugénie, a renowned cook whose talents are unmatched. Benoît Magimel plays Dodin, a brilliant epicure. With their talents combined, the pair prepare a meal for a visiting prince, revolving around a “pot-au-feu” (an iconic French dish of slow cooked beef stew). Eugénie and Dodin’s culinary collaboration transcends the kitchen, blossoming into a deep friendship that occasionally flirts with romance. Can Dodin’s exceptional culinary instincts and longing for a deeper connection persuade Eugénie to marry him? France’s submission to the 2024 Oscars, The Taste of Things not only celebrates French cuisine but also underscores the devotion, care, and time it demands. PG Nudity
