Taste Of France | Gastronomy Night

Enjoy French drinks and delicacies prior to a screening of The Kitchen Brigade!

Alliance Française French Film Festival Gastronomy Night

See the Festival hit, The Kitchen Brigade, a feel-good story with a strong touch of humanity, and enjoy scrumptious French drinks and delicacies prior to the film. 

The Kitchen Brigade

The follow up movie to Petit’s box-office hit Invisibles (AF FFF20) The Kitchen Brigade, explores the world of French gastronomy while also tackling issues of social justice and inclusion through the story of Cathy.

Cathy (Audrey Lamy, already starring in Invisibles) is an inflexible 40-year-old sous-chef, finally fulfilling her lifelong dream of opening her own high-end restaurant. Things do not go to plan. Facing serious financial difficulties, she reluctantly accepts a job in the cafeteria of a shelter for young migrants. Though she hates the new job at first, Cathy’s remarkable skill and passion for cuisine start to change the kids’ lives. And it turns out they also have a lot to teach her.

True to his favourite genre, social comedy, Louis-Julien Petit explores learning, communication, success and self-esteem, mixing humour, humanism, realism and entertainment. With The Kitchen Brigade, the director pays tribute to young people with a tormented past and an uncertain future, holding onto hope of a better life, struggling relentlessly to integrate into French society; and of course, acknowledges all those who devote so much energy to help them.
