The Taste of Things (12A)

The Taste of Things

La Passion de Dodin Bouffant


This mouthwatering and sensual exercise in haute cuisine and late-flowering romance is set in 1885 and almost totally within the confines of a rustic kitchen in a chateau. This is our closing film of this year’s French Film Festival.


Tran Anh Hùng, the Vietnamese director, now living in France, of ‘The Scent of the Green Papaya’ based the film on the book ‘The Life and Passion of Dodin-Bouffant, Gourmet’ by Marcel Rouff. Peerless cook Eugénie (Juliette Binoche) has worked for the famous gourmet Dodin (Benoît Magimel) for the last 20 years. As time went by, the practice of gastronomy and mutual admiration turned into a romantic relationship. He realises, however, that while he schmoozes the rich and famous in the dining room, she remains in the kitchen but is clearly hugely responsible for his august reputation. There is talk of marriage, but Eugénie values her independence too much in a relationship that she considers should be of equal parts. Both Binoche and Magimel who were together in life for a considerable time, exude an effortless rapport. Chosen as France’s Oscar contender. Warning: Another film like the recent ‘Delicieux’ that should not be seen on an empty stomach! (Subtitles)

All of Us Strangers (15)

All of Us Strangers

A screenwriter drawn back to his childhood home enters into a fledgling relationship with a mysterious neighbour. Adapted by Andrew Haigh from a Japanese story, this unusual romance is aching, gorgeously shot and shimmering with sadness.


One night in his near-empty tower block in contemporary London, Adam (Andrew Scott) has a chance encounter with a mysterious neighbour Harry (Paul Mescal), which punctures the rhythm of his everyday life. As a relationship develops between them, Adam is preoccupied with memories of the past and finds himself drawn back to the suburban town where he grew up, and the childhood home where his parents (Claire Foy and Jamie Bell), appear to be living, just as they were on the day they died, 30 years before. Haigh, cinematographer Jamie D. Ramsay (‘Living’), and editor Jonathan Alberts utilize a lot of brilliant techniques to keep Adam slipping between worlds, to never fully resolve whether he is dreaming, is seeing ghosts, or is already one himself. A deeply moving film about loss and loneliness with a quartet of performances that blend together in a breathtaking way.

The Fall Guy (12A)

The Fall Guy

A down-and-out stuntman must find the missing star of his ex-girlfriend's blockbuster film in this hilarious and thoughtful tribute to the stunt community.


Colt Seavers (Ryan Gosling) is a stuntman. He gets blown up, shot, crashed, thrown through windows and dropped from the highest of heights, all for our entertainment. And now, fresh off an almost career-ending accident, this working-class hero has to track down the missing Tom Ryder (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), an international superstar with a lethal combo of arrogance and insecurity which Colt regularly stunt doubles for. But that is not all, he must also solve a conspiracy and try to win back the love of his life - Jody (Emily Blunt) - while still doing his day job. What could possibly go right? Gosling and Blunt are terrific together, but the film also gives them both space to shine separately, with the help of a great supporting cast led by a scene-stealing Hannah Waddingham.

Love Lies Bleeding (15)

Love Lies Bleeding

Gym manager Lou falls for Jackie, a bodybuilder who is passing through town en route to a competition in Las Vegas.


1989, New Mexico. Lonely gym manager Lou (Kristen Stewart) spends her free time listening to cassette tapes on quitting smoking. The only thing keeping her in this small town is her sister Beth (Jena Malone), who is frequently beaten by her spineless husband JJ (Dave Franco). Everything changes when Jackie (Katy O’Brian) saunters into the gym: a square-jawed, leotard-wearing goddess heading to Vegas for a bodybuilding championship. This film from director Rose Glass (‘Saint Maud’) is all about the body, what lurks within it, and what physical extremes we’ll push ourselves to for lust, love and freedom. It veers through noir to revenge thriller to pitch-black comedy via moments of magic realism. When it’s not purely thrilling and darkly funny, it’s also just so wonderfully gay. Kristen Stewart with a mullet reading a book called ‘Macho Sluts’ might just be the representation queer women have been waiting for.
