Le Chef (Comme un chef)

84 mins | M | 2012 | France / Spain

Director: Daniel Cohen
Writer: Daniel Cohen
Starring: Jean Reno, Michaël Youn, Raphaëlle Agogué, Julien Boisselier

Alexandre Lagarde (Reno) is a legendary French chef, running the kitchen at his successful 3 Michelin Star restaurant in Paris. But he is losing his edge, struggling to find the passion for food he once enjoyed. Jacky Bonnot (Youn) has almost the opposite problem – he has the culinary skill of his hero Lagarde and is overflowing with passion. So much so that he struggles to keep a job; his love and devotion to his art being more important to him than maintaining a civil relationship with his employers or customers.

When Bonnot lands an internship with Lagarde, he may be the great chef’s last hope of saving his restaurant from Stanislas Matter (Boisselier), the corporate (read: evil) owner’s son looking for an excuse to get rid of Lagarde and change the restaurant to one featuring molecular gastronomy. But only if these two very different men can learn to get along...
