A Taste of Hunger

Christoffer Boe, Denmark, 2021

104 min.DK/FeatureDrama

Maggie and Carsten love each other, they have two wonderful children, and they run their gourmet restaurant, Malus. They want it all. And they have it all. Almost. They are missing the coveted Michelin Star. A dream on which they have gambled everything to win. One day Carsten receives a letter saying that his wife loves somebody else. But who sent the letter and why? In their continuous passion and pursuit of the ultimate recognition, they forget that there is no such thing as a free lunch.
