Le Chef (8/10)

by Tony Medley

Runtime 85 minutes.

OK for children.

Writer (with  Olivier Dazat) director Daniel Cohen takes a simple tale of a Three Star chef,  Alexandre Lagarde (Jean Reno) who is in danger of losing a star and, therefore, his acclaimed restaurant and a self-taught, aspiring chef, Jacky (MichaŽl Young) who joins with Lagarde with each helping the other and turns it into a fine, rewarding farce.

One of the delights of the film is Jackyís pregnant girlfriend, Beatrice, played by RaphaŽlle Agogue, one of the most beautiful actresses one could hope to see. But the film belongs to Young who gives what amounts to a tour-de-force as the ambitious, perfectionist chef. His scene with Lagarde when they invade a competitorís restaurant dressed as a Japanese and his geisha works because of Youngís performance and his makeup which makes him perfectly believable as a geisha. In French, Spanish, Japanese, and English.
