Ingredients for Dreams

In this wistful 2001 romantic comedy by German director Gordian Maugg (Olympic Summer), a middle-aged woman (Renate Krossner) rekindles her passion for cuisine when an old flame asks her to help him win a cooking contest. Wisely, Maugg soft-pedals the overworked foodie-movie cliche that equates kitchen mastery with sensual abandon. The shimmering waterways of the Spreewald forest provide a dreamy backdrop for Krossner's eloquently deadpan performance. In German and Polish with subtitles. 97 min.
