Tush 3

Food Movies Department

After a long interval, another food movie.  Another nationality and another culture.  This one tells of an extended family of Tunisian-French living in Mediterranean France.  The father/grandfather is let go from his shipyard job, so he uses his severance pay to start a Tunisian restaurant that will employ his entire family.

Lots of intra-family drama, and some fine characterizations.  Unfortunately, although a pot of couscous plays a central role, the food otherwise is little on display.  So, as a movie, B+ (it did win the French Cesar), but as a food movie, only a C+.  In French with subtitles.  The Secret of the Grain.
