Documentary
The latest in a slew of superchef documentaries, this one looks at Michel Bras as he passes his Michelin three-star restaurant in Laguiole, France, on to his son Sebastien (the plot recalls the recent Jiro Dreams of Sushi). Long, lingering shots show the younger chef staring off into the sunrise (Get it? "The son rises"?) and laboring over a dish meant to evoke his childhood, but these don't do much to illuminate what's at stake before or after he takes over. The elder Bras doesn't seem very committed to retirement anyway, so the only thing filmmaker Paul Lacoste might leave you hungry for is a coherent point.
