Le Chef’s Movie Poster

Feature Film

Le Chef

Audience Award for Best International Feature,
2014 Florida Film Festival

Toss together a veteran three-star chef, a new CEO who wants him out, a molecular gastronomist whom the CEO wants in, and an incredibly talented and obsessive young chef. Throw in a dash of Japanese high farce. Sauté with the flawless charm and great timing of French comedy and voila! LE CHEF. Jacky is a young chef who keeps getting fired from his jobs at ordinary restaurants where he expects extraordinary gastronomes. Béatrice is Jacky’s very pregnant girlfriend. Alexandre Lagarde (played by the fabulous Jean Reno, Leon the Professional) is a three-star living legend past his prime. Sweating his contract (that depends on his three stars), Chef Lagarde pits his wits against a new CEO who wants his traditional French cuisine replaced by molecular gastronomy. Sacré bleu! Jacky has been reduced to washing windows at a nursing home when the two meet and begin a brilliant collaboration. French, funny, food, love, LE CHEF has it all.

France | Spain, 2012, In French with English subtitles, 84 min, Rated PG-13, Directed by Daniel Cohen

“Hilarious!  LE CHEF is feel-good cinema to the max!”

– Doris Toumarkine, FILM JOURNAL

“Ceaselessly charming!  It gets sweeter and more delicious by the frame.”

– Jeffrey Lyons, LYONS DEN RADIO

“Light and broad comedy fuse together harmoniously in this frothy comedy set in the restaurant world in which cuisine, relationships and careers are agitated precariously in a mixing bowl of surprises.”

– Louise Keller, URBAN CINEPHILE

“Highly likeable, souffle-light French comedy.”

– Jim Schembri, 3AW

“In the world of culinary cinema, if Babette’s Feast is a 10-oz. filet mignon and Eat Drink Man Woman is a 4-lb. lobster, then this French import registers as a delectable bonbon, small and insignificant but nevertheless sweet and satisfying.”
