Movie Review: Chef
Jon Favreau’s ‘Chef’ is a delectable take on an out-of-work cook who is passionate about cooking but unwilling to compromise with his skill. The film is the story of how he turns around his career by traveling cross-country serving Cuban entrees on a food truck. From the mouth-watering carne asada to the molten chocolate cake, the film will leave you hungry for more.
‘Chef’ is not just a tale of a man rejuvenating his career, it also focuses on emotions and relationships –specially the one between Carl and his son, which in a way turns out to be a major factor for Carl’s career boost.
With the Cuban sandwich as their signature dish, Carl’s food truck stops at places like New Orleans, Austin, Texas, adding their own flair to local dishes. Foodies will love the scenes where Carl churns out lip-smacking dishes.
But that one thing that will appeal to (well for people like me, of course) the audience is the way Twitter has been integrated into the film. Percy, the son, is a social media evangelist who knows his marketing tricks too well. It’s just a tap on the iPad and BOOM – there comes the crowd at the food truck. Even the initial scenes where Carl learns about Twitter and his first tweet blooper add to the fun.
With memorable performances and a script you can relate to, Chef easily becomes the ideal Sunday morning movie. You can NOT stop yourself from rushing to the nearest restaurant as soon as the movie gets over.
My Rating: 4/5 stars
