an interesting movie

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
The movie is called " Vatel "

The other day I decided to rent a movie which starred , Gerard Depardieu, Uma Thurman, Tim Roth and Julian Glover.
I must say I really enjoyed the movie. If you would like to know a little about the movie here it is:
In 1671, with war brewing with Holland, a penniless prince invites Louis XIV to three days of festivities at a chateau in Chantilly. In the movie, Vatel a faithful steward, who comes from penniless beginnings, plans to deliver a sumptuous decadent feast in elaborate designs and entertainment for the welcoming of the King. I will say no more.
Do you remember an interesting movie which you enjoyed and would like to share ?

Two movies come to mind immediately. The first is Babbette's Feast. Babettes gæstebud (1987)

I think it was my first food movie I've seen, and I've seen it several times and will watch it again.


The second movie, which I saw a few weeks ago, is not a very "pretty" movie, called Food, Inc.
Official Food, Inc. Movie Site - Hungry For Change?

I don't think I can look at piece of Smithfield ham again. The movie was a real eye opener to movie.

It's lovely how movies can stay with you, and you want to watch them again and again. My 2 favourites are Long kiss goodnight with Geena Davis and Samuel L Jackson. Action with pathos.
2nd is a recent remake of Arthur. As in Knights of the round table Arthur. But with a fabulous twist Keira knightly and Clive Owen were jolly good.

Are you asking for strictly food related movies?

For me Babettes Feast is one of my favorites. I also enjoyed Vatel.

It does not have to be food related.
