"No matter where you go, there you are."


Juliette Binoche and Benoît Magimel enjoy some fine food in The Taste of Things trailer

Set in France in the late 19th century, the film follows the life of Dodin Bouffant (Benoît Magimel) as the preeminent chef living with his personal cook and lover Eugénie (Oscar®-winner Juliette Binoche). Eugénie and Dodin share a long history of gastronomy and love. While emotions remain contained, the culinary discoveries are, on the other hand, breathtakingly exquisite. The only hitch is that Eugénie refuses to marry Dodin. So, the food lover decides to do something he has never done before: cook for her.

Written and directed by Tran Anh Hung (The Scent of Green Papaya), the film is France’s official entry for Best International Feature in the 96th Academy Awards.

The Taste of Things will have a qualifying run in December 2023 in support of all awards categories, and open theatrically on February 9th, 2024 (limited), with an expansion on February 14th timed to Valentine’s Day.
