Before watch a new movie, I always look at IMDb read reviews. The opinions about this film was quite similar and such that I almost decided not to watch. Well, what change my mind!

It is not all talking about food, not about cooking, not about how to feed the President. This movie about the attitude life, the ability to live and get pleasure from everything you do. Hortense (the pronunciation is the name me dearer than Hydrangea) is able to live a tasty and for the right to live ready only fight, but and retreat when the struggle takes too much effort. She enjoys his work and in the Elysee Palace and the kitchen of the Northern base on the edge of the world. But when pleasure is no more, it is not clinging to the familiar world, not is looking for an excuse — goes, goes on with your head held high!

A very revealing meeting her with the President, two man in the darkness... One found its place in life and doubts yourself and other unhappy despite its status and achievements.

Estimates put not will. Just a very good movie.

Most of the films relating to the topic of cooking, belong to the French cinema that unlikely will be anyone by surprise, since France is considered as not only the birthplace of cinema, but home to gourmet cooking. That's why I wanted to take some special film with a twist, and not a standard story about the chef in the restaurant. I opted for a fresh tape by Christian Vincent, which bypassed Russia party, but came out in this year DVD.

This film tells the story of a famous chef from the provinces of France, Hortense Laborie, which the recommendations were promoted as a personal chef, a high-ranking person. But his name is it is knows not even know why she driven of Paris, the eighth arrondissement, the Faubourg Saint-honoré, D. 55, the Elysee Palace. As already have guessed, she will have to serve the President! Hydrangea quickly show the possession of the kitchen and familiar with the regulations that it is required to comply with. And then she needs to show imagination and to make a menu for the head of state and its possible guests. And it has no idea what dishes and products President prefers. Whether the main character to find a way to the heart of the chief men of the country?

The French I do not disappoint. Here there will show a menu for real gourmets: truffles served, and soups cuttlefish cooked and paste foie Gras on toast smeared to oysters. All this very nicely decorated. Even the titles sound amazing. I'm not even thought personal chef, you have to have not only the menu, but and the very concept of lunch! This is really high art, but not a banal cooking. With great pleasure watched the cooking the atmosphere on the kitchen. As far as I know, Hortense Laborie — is a fictional character, but based on the real prototype. So I believe that way of the Elysee Palace shows significantly that adds Sharma.

Speaking of charm. Catherine froh beautifully performed the main role. She kept very gracefully. Dresses and skirts, shoes on a small heel, necklace, hair gathered in shell — all together made an image of Hydrangea elegant. Katrin natural look at the frame, so it is impossible not to fall under her charm. But the film I have one claim — too monotonous. I'm not to say that it's boring, but measured. I never had the climax of events. But the overall impression is pleasant. It is a good European movie with French charm. Let it makes you wonder not revealing the truth, but is able to decorate the evening in front of the screen.

Oh, France! The country of love and cooking.... If not removed about first, then get ready to see the divine dishes that are prepared for the magic moments. This film is such. Half the words — refined the names of dishes and their recipes that you unlikely to cook. Other half refers to the hard work of the chefs that should serve the President.

The lyrical story is not can boast of unpredictable twists and the source of true meaning, but this is it and captivating. Easy, funny and simultaneously tragic fate of the heroine makes the viewer just follow it, to observe and to experience. Will there be broken strong woman or it will yield pride of place to others? The answer is predictable, which at the time of viewing to believe it not want.

It is a pity that this movie will go unnoticed, because there is no Hollywood toppings. I don't want to say that this picture — a masterpiece, it should just look for a good game of actors, in the end, because of French charm. For all I'll film
