Critic’s Pick. Absorbing from start to finish.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times

“The most delicious excuse to spend four hours in a theater has got to be this new doc from the legendary Frederick Wiseman that takes a look at the workings of a family-owned three-Michelin-star restaurant in central France.”– Alison Willmore, New York Magazine

Frederick Wiseman’s latest, (his 44th!) finds him back in France, peering into the world of the Troisgros family restaurant, founded in 1930, that has been holding 3 Michelin stars for 55 years over four generations.

Michel Troisgros, the third generation to head the restaurant, has turned over the responsibility for the cuisine to his son César, the 4th generation of Troisgros chefs.

From the market to pick fresh vegetables, to a cheese processing plant, a vineyard, an organic cattle ranch to the backyard garden supplying the restaurant, Wiseman embarks us on a mouthwatering and sense-pleasing journey into the family’s three restaurant kitchens.

An immersive experience, showing the great artistry, ingenuity, imagination, and hard work of the restaurant staff in creating, preparing, and presenting meals of the highest quality.
