Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2023: #20. Alonso Ruizpalacios’ La Cocina
Another project that was working under the radar, Mexican filmmaker Alonso Ruizpalacios quickly moved back into production on his fourth film project only moments after launching his non-fiction 2021 entry A Cop Movie. Based on the play by Arnold Wesker, La Cocina (aka The Kitchen) was in production in April of last year in NYC with – and Ruizpalacios lassoing Rooney Mara. the drama certainly recalls of his 2008 short film.
Gist: This follows the life in the kitchen of a NYC restaurant where cultures from all over the world blend during the lunchtime rush.
Release Date/Prediction: We think Ruizpalacios will return to the Berlinale – in comp for the Golden Bear.
