The Taste of Things

The Taste of Things is a beautifully rendered period romance, that thrives, primarily, off a love and affection for food. To mark it’s very timely Valentine’s Day release, we were fortunate enough to travel to Paris to speak to both the leading star Juliette Binoche, alongside Vietnamese filmmaker Tran Anh Hung.

We discuss food, and the logistical challenges – and joys – in shooting such meticulous, and considered cooking sequences. While Binoche speaks in honest and great detail about her experience collaborating with Benoit Magimel for the first time since their seperation many years ago. Be sure to watch both interviews in their entirety below.

Cook Eugenie and her boss Dodin grow fond of one another over 20 years, and their romance gives rise to dishes that impress even the world’s most illustrious chefs. When Dodin is faced with Eugenie’s reluctance to commit, he begins to cook for her.
