Le Pot-au-feu de Dodin Bouffant

Entering his fourth decade of filmmaking which began all the way back with the Cannes Film Festival Caméra d’Or winning The Scent of Green Papaya (1993), Tran Anh Hung‘s seventh feature is a return to the kitchen with Le Pot-au-feu de Dodin Bouffant – a period romance starring Juliette Binoche and Benoit Magimel which was shot in a French castle. Produced by Olivier Delbosc, production began in April of last year. Expect the culinary aspects of the film will be on point.

Gist: This charts the relationship between Eugenie, an esteemed cook, and Dodin, the fine gourmet she has been working for over the last 20 years. Growing fonder of one another, their bond turns into a romance and gives rise to delicious dishes that impress even the world’s most illustrious chefs. When Dodin is faced with Eugenie’s reluctance to commit to him, he decides to start cooking for her.

Release Date/Prediction: We see this in the Cannes Premiere section.
