The Taste of Things
- This is a past program
Time is one the most precious things we have, and yet the art of “taking your time” feels almost lost these days. In The Taste of Things, the meeting of two great art forms—cooking and cinema—results in a sumptuous wonder. Director Trần Anh Hùng, winner of the Best Director award at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, meticulously unveils the artistry of a late-19th-century cook (Juliette Binoche) and her gourmet employer (Benoît Magimel). Lingering over steaming broths, sizzling meats, and luscious sauces, the film engages senses beyond sight and sound. Wrapped in heartfelt midlife romance, this is a film to let yourself linger on and indulge in. Post-screening conversation moderated by chef Evan Kleiman.
The Taste of Things. 2023. France. Written and directed by Trần Anh Hùng. With Juliette Binoche, Benoît Magimel, Emmanuel Salinger. DCP. 145 min. Courtesy IFC Films
