Dated if the cook as a rock star. “Burned” as matfilm has no suction.

Adam Jones is a former star chef who once Paris foodies for its boots clad feet, but drank and snorted away from all the glory.

But shame on those who give themselves. After Adam Jones made his penance and opened a million oysters on his secret retreat mail in exotic Louisiana, he is back. A bit scruffy but still tough. This time in London. And now he wants … drum rolls … the only thing he did not have, and therefore never lost: a third star in the French restaurant bible the Michelin Guide. Jones begins to go around and gather up a bunch of chefs, as if it was a “big blow” film that was about.



However, the chef boundless bad boy? Hello? Nineties called certain and wanted her dressed in white, matosiga rock star back. It is unfortunately only conclude that “Burnt” feels hopelessly dated and Adam Jones tramping up as a dinosaur in the 2010s eating scene. Whether director John Wells (“August – Osage County”) and screenwriter Steven Knight (“Eastern Promises”) has had longstanding problem with giving this project the wings, so it is difficult to understand that they have not been more idiosyncratic in the particular case food and restaurant culture. Few subjects have been so much focus in recent years.

When the most trendy and innovative chefs boots around in the forest in search of the perfect cap to strain the long-cooked broth at the old graze it does not feel so hot with a fine dining movie that most seem as if it is not got beyond ‘the new French cuisine “. Okay, the former perhaps most applies the trendy Nordic cuisine. And certainly, “Burnt” trying to deal with the conflict between the more finklassiska cuisine Adam Jones like to master to perfection, and the chemistry-based cooking that has been hot in the 2000s.

But the most serious objection against the “Burnt” as matfilm considered is that it creates no craving for a delicious meal. You see, when Adam Jones reluctantly begins to deal with sous vide technology and make elaborate arrangements, but cooking in the film does not go through screen.

Actually, there are only one real reason to see ” burned “and spelled Bradley Cooper. After “American Sniper” feels it may not be obvious to see him get involved with parsley sprigs instead to grab a sniper rifle. But Cooper has a charisma and an availability in his style of play that proves to be developed even when the character, as in “Burnt”, is in square best team. It’s also fun to see Omar Sy as suggestions old employees, Sienna Miller as struggling single mother, Daniel Brühl as lovesick financier and, not least, Matthew Rhys (from “The Americans”) as småpsykotisk competitor. “Burned” works best if you regard it as an ensemble drama and not as a matfilm.
