Menus-Plaisirs Les Troisgros

“For over fifty years, the venerable French restaurant La Maison Troisgros has held three Michelin stars. The phrase menus plaisirs translates to ‘small pleasures’—and this film is rich with them. [Frederick] Wiseman explores the rarefied world of the Troisgros family, who have operated their establishment for four generations. He and his cameraman James Bishop observe the restaurant owners and workers from multiple perspectives. . . . In the kitchen, the chefs operate like artists in their handling of exquisite dishes. . . . For nearly four hours of this film, you can soak up the atmosphere at an unhurried pace” (Thom Powers, Toronto International Film Festival).
