France has produced some very funny and engaging movies over the years, including 8 Women (2002), Amelie (2001), and The Closet (2001). I recently saw two delightful movies from La Belle France that don't demand much except an open heart.
Haute Cuisine (2012) (Les Saveurs du Palais, original title) is a charming and mouthwatering movie about the French president's first female chef. Based on a true story, Haute Cuisine is a tasty morsel that leaves you salivating over the scrumptious french dishes that fill the screen. And although Haute Cuisine has subplots involving sexism and politics, it's foremost a movie about food.
