STEP UP TO THE PLATE
Entre les Bras – La Cuisine en héritage
TICKETS WILL BE ON SALE FROM 11AM FRIDAY OCTOBER 26TH
Paul Lacoste’s impressive documentary is set over the course of a year in the Bras family’s three-Michelin-starred restaurant in the south of France. Father Michel, typically exacting, has decided to hand over the reins to his son Sébastien, but struggles to cede control to a chef with his own ideas and techniques, however talented he may be. As meticulously constructed as Michel’s famous Gargouillou de jeunes légumes, the film provides insight not just into the rarefied world in which such chefs exist, but also into the dynamics of a father-son relationship defined by a shared vocation.
Director’s Note: Divided into the four seasons, this delicate, contemplative documentary chronicles the handing over of the Bras family restaurant from father to son.
