Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Delicious doc is a notch above average foodie fare.
Fresh: Amid many haphazard details and much talk of obsession, the lush work by cinematographer Mark Ellam is something of a guide, sensuous and outstanding, his macro lens showing the very female wonder of fruit.
Fresh: Hearing the personalities describe the transcendent tastes of different fruits has me wanting to hop the next plane to Hawaii just to taste a water apple.
Fresh: More of a buffet spread than a single plate. But every morsel is worth a taste.
By its very nature, this documentary is lucious. Beautiful cinematography joins sumptuous descriptions of flavour & texture. And yes, this is the same documentary that was on CBC earlier in 2013, albeit the extended version.
…a paradise. A lovely movie that is less like what some would call “food porn” but more like “food erotica”, if those terms are appropriate. Thought-provoking and discussion generating. Worth the time it took to watch.
