The Taste of Others (2000)

The Taste of Others (2000)
The Taste of Others is a 2000 French film. It was directed by Agnès Jaoui, and written by her and Jean-Pierre Bacri. It stars Jean-Pierre Bacri, Anne Alvaro, Alain Chabat, Agnès Jaoui, Gérard Lanvin and Christiane Millet. The movie won the César Award for Best Film, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Writing in 2001, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Castella owns a industrial steel barrel plant in Rouen; Bruno is his flute-playing driver, Franck is his temporary bodyguard while he negotiates a contract with Iranians, his wife Angélique does frou-frou interior decorating and loves her dog. The conventional Castella hires a forty-year-old actress, Clara, to tutor him in English, and he finds her and her Bohemian lifestyle fascinating. Is this love? What would she say if he declared himself?

F: This is a very soothing and beautiful movie. It relaxed me. It's charming, and très drôle sometimes. Agnès Jaoui did an amazing job.


F: Castella's first English exercise can make you roll on the floor laughing. Be careful. The dialogues and situations are very humorous. I especially liked the moments with the bodyguard and the chauffeur.

F: Now that I've watched this French flick, I feel more sophistiqué, my dear aunt. I think that this one will definitely attract more mademoiselles to the blog! Thanks for showing me this. Alright subtitle fearing people, fear no more, because coming up next, it's JURASSIC WOOORLD.

just perfect
