Tran Ahn Hung's The Taste of Things (aka The Pot au Feu) has been near the top of my best-of-2023 list since I first saw it in Cannes last May. (Here's my 5.24.23 review.) Pretty much everyone with a semblance of taste in film and/or food adores it. It's not just endearing but a form of religious rapture by way of a series of loving, nurturing food orgasms. But it's more than just a fine foodie flick.
