Nino Kirtadze and Pierre Richard in Chef In LoveA Chef In Love (Shekvarebuli kulinaris ataserti retsepti) is the only Georgian film to receive an Oscar nomination. There are two great central performances by Nino Kirtadze, making her screen debut, and Pierre Richard as the larger than life chef and bon vivant, traveling to Georgia to find new culinary delights and inspirations in the early 1920s. He falls in love with a beautiful Georgian princess (Kirtadze) and then this wonderfully romantic, sensual and comic story becomes intertwined with historic events as the Red Army take power in Tbilisi. Told as a series of flashbacks from the present the film is in French, Georgian and Russian with English subtitles, and directed by Nana Jorjadze. 100 mins.
