This documentary about star chefs by Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker (The War Room) is a little on the light side but still more substantial than any TV food show. The directors follow Chicago French Pastry School cofounder Jacquy Pfeiffer as he prepares for a three-day competition in Lyon, where he hopes to win the coveted Meilleurs Ouvriers de France accolade. Inventive and driven, the personable Pfeiffer has a natural screen presence, but among the contestants is an equally appealing underdog, the quietly focused Philippe Rigollot of Valence, who feels his future riding on the outcome of the marathon bake-off. The behind-the-scenes access to professional kitchens, the intricacy of the desserts, the venerable traditions, and above all the camaraderie and respect the chefs extend each other reveal the craftsmen at their civilized best; think of this movie as the antidote to Gordon Ramsay. In English and subtitled French.
Director: Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker
