    French chef Michel Bras, one of the most influential chefs in the world, has decided to hand over his renowned 3-Michelin-Star restaurant to his son Sébastien.

    Film Reviews

    “Foodies will marvel at the studied care given every choice of herb, every flick of a wrist, every design of a plate." Critics Pick! —The New York Times

    "Delicious! For foodies—or, really, for anyone who appreciates watching a creative master at work—it’s great, revealing stuff.” —Washington Post

    “An intimate and immaculate film. Lacoste captures the men as they meticulously craft their signature dishes in near-silence. Their hushed, almost religious ritual dispenses with master-chef histrionics and brings a calm intelligence to their culinary work." —The New Yorker
