About the Movie
What happens when the world's most acclaimed restaurant picks up and moves halfway across the world? Named for just one of the many surprising dishes that René Redzepi serves at his esteemed Copenhagen foodie destination Noma (named 'World’s Best Restaurant' in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014), Ants on a Shrimp follows the superstar chef and his team as they relocate to Japan to set up a five-week pop-up in Tokyo. But creating an all-new, fourteen-course menu foraged from local sources in an unfamiliar country presents unforeseen challenges--and may be a make-or-break moment for the risk-taking Redzepi's career. This cross-cultural culinary odyssey is both a behind-the-scenes look at a food world visionary and a mouthwatering showcase for some of the most adventurous cuisine on the planet.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Redzepi is a restless soul, and Maurice Dekkers's engaging "Ants on a Shrimp" follows him on an adventure that seems almost recklessly impulsive.
Fresh: If the title "Ants on a Shrimp" evokes the worst picnic ever, guess again.
Fresh: Like a well-executed fine-dining experience, this sleek documentary entertains, delights, and makes viewers comfortable without evident sweat.
Food porn at its best and the kind of arranged food marriage I wish I could attend. NOMA/Redzepi in Tokyo - as good a doc about a chef, his process and one of the most refined food cities in the world - a gastronomic and visual feast - stunning.
The chef of the best restaurant in the world packs up and moves his crew from Scandnavia to Tokyo, where fine dining is a fetish - the results are pretty mouth-wateringly amazing. Great food porn doc
