“Had been fortunate enough to watch this during the #17 ZFF and meet the cast afterwards. Have to say Iu0026#39;ve been a bit skeptical about the title, even though the premise sounded solid but as fine dining like sex itu0026#39;s u0026quot;what you get what matters not what you are missingu0026quot;. I havenu0026#39;t missed a thing with Philipp Barantiniu0026#39;s excellent one shot drama / thriller which is tense and builds up from the very 1st second the camera started rolling. A busy night in fine dining starts when tables are overbooked on a Friday night before Christmas, no biggies here could be an average intro to an average cooking / restaurant drama which weu0026#39;ve seen many times before. But here the twist is that the whole movie apart from the scripted story arc is entirely improvised and taken in one shot, which gets immediately obvious once Emily (Hannah Walters) and Tim (Kieran Urquhart) have a genuine pivotal interaction which sets up the movie towards the rollercoaster what to expect and to be suspicious to pay for attention very closely. Donu0026#39;t get me wrong Andy (Stephen Graham) our Chef heads to the restaurant steals the screen immediately to slowly build up tension but up until the aforementioned interaction itu0026#39;s relatively easy going. The ending had me a bit mischieved yet settling in after a couple of minutes fully satisfied and reflected to the entire 90 minutes as its a good ending and perfectly fitting to the whole story, but yet this story is rather a semi cinema varieté towards a cathartic climax. Take an advice and go watch 2021u0026#39;s one of the best thrillers so far!”
