mostly martha

Another fine foodie movie along the lines of Chocolat and Babette’s Feast. Only this time it’s an uptight German chef whose exquisite dishes get screen-time. Martha’s orderly life as queen of the kitchen comes undone when her grief-stricken niece, Lina, comes into her care. The kicker is she won’t eat any of her fine French cuisine. Lina’s appetite shifts when a warm-hearted Italian chef enters the picture with old-style pasta dishes and a way with Tiramisu – and Martha. Features a quirky, toe-tapping soundtrack. Make reservations for dinner after the show. Or better still cook at home. [germany 2002]
