- Eden review by CP Customer
I hadn't heard of this film before but thought it sounded interesting. It is a wee gem of a German film that is very French in style. There are elements of other foodie films such as Tampopo and Babette's Feast running through this and the small child is a terrific actress. No heavy storylines or moral judgements - just a different film that is so unlike any Hollywood production-line number!

- Eden review by JD
This is minority/cult viewing. A morbidly obese chef who watches waitresses and befriends one and her Down's syndrome daughter with a chocolate cake. The father of whom eventually beats him up and tries to destroy him. The acting is not captivating but the weirdness of the plot strangely compelling. The topless bierkeller and the visceral way in which the chef enjoys his food I found particularly Germanic, I'm not sure why.
