Tràn Anh Hùng's new feature film The Taste of Things is a great example of ‘cinema of senses’. The scenes in the film are almost entirely of cooking in the kitchen or presentations at the dinner table, reminiscent of a ritual. The film engages the audience in these experiences through image and sound. The comprehensive recipes of the beautiful dishes, the detailed preparations and finally, the consumption are mind-blowing. Behind these appetising scenes is a poignant love story that addresses class and the place of women in society. The incredibly talented cook, played by Juliette Binoche, has been cooking for the gourmet, played by Benoît Magimel, for years. A passion for gastronomy is not all they share; there also is a profound love. The talent of the cook and the wisdom of the gourmet somehow equate them despite the gender roles of the 19th century, making them both intimate and distant... Vietnamese-born French director Tràn Anh Hùng, known for The Smell of Green Papaya and Cyclo, made a huge comeback with The Taste of Things after seven years.
