Editorial Reviews

Amazing things take place in the "heart of the house" (the kitchen)! This yummy drama follows the Italian-flavored dinner preparations being made by a young woman (Christina Hendricks) for her older lover (Joaquim de Almeida); a couple (Oz Perkins, Leisha Hailey) expecting a baby; a man preparing an elaborate feast for a tardy partner; and a film crew struggling with a lavish dining scene. Rachel Hunter, Clare Carey co-star. 89 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; audio commentary; photo gallery; theatrical trailer.

The first act is gorgeous and has an unusual film style. Three different women, we see mostly just their hands, make a meal. One is clearly a creative, incredible chef, the second trys to follow a cookbook but makes a real mess, and the third a butterfly flying around her apartment making a salad and taking a shower. All the while, a neighbor plays beautiful guitar. The connection between the three women and their relative skill at cooking, life, and men is slowly revealed. The second act turns mundane with a man sitting in front of a television set masturbating to a porno. From there the film turns into a three room play, with characters that just talk about relationships, love, and sex.

This is a low budget film that tries to be intellectual. I'm not sure it succeeds. Joaquim de Almeida, a character actor from Portugal (24 season 3 Ramon Salazar) in his fifties, is the suave free spirited European Michael that is dating a much younger woman, Lily, played by Christina Hendricks (the buxom Rubenesque redhead from Mad Men). About half the movie is spent in her apartment with the two talking and drinking wine. The other half is spent in the gorgeous kitchen of Jude (Rachel Hunter) talking to her pregnant friend Shelly (Leisha Hailey, the L Word). There is the occasional intermission in the apartment courtyard where we hear some fantastic guitar playing - a lovely Taylor acoustic and Gibson SG Custom.

The best part of this film is the soundtrack. Well, Christina Hendricks is also a pleasure.

The film is not rated, but should probably be reserved for more mature audiences. I did a bit of research; the film came up fairly clean, so we watched this with a thirteen year old.
