Juliette Binoche and Benoît Magimel star in Vietnamese-French director Tran Anh Hung’s culinary historical drama. The braised beef dish of the film’s title should alert you to the sensory delights delivered by the Cannes Winner for Best Director. Eugenie (Binoche) is a cook hired by gourmet Dodin Bouffant (Magimel), and their harmonious, loving relationship is irreducible to employer-employee. Unsurprisingly, every meal is a work of art shown in long takes and close-ups. In The Pot Au Feu, cooking is an art form, and cinema is a slave to that art form.
"A highly watchable Aga saga" - Damon Wise, Deadline.
