"You talk too much about food, Dad." "Well, it's my job." Magnolia Pictures has revealed the full US trailer for a Danish film titled A Taste of Hunger, an emotional drama about running a restaurant. This already opened in Denmark last summer, and is finally getting an official US release this month. It's about a couple who sacrifice everything to achieve the highest possible accolade in the culinary world - a Michelin star. This "power couple", played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau & Katrine Greis-Rosenthal, in the Danish gourmet scene run the popular restaurant Malus in Copenhagen. But that popularity isn't enough. Or is it…? Also starring Flora Augusta, Charlie Gustafsson, August Vinkel, Nicolas Bro, Maj-Britt Mathiesen, and Kent Dahlgren. Ohhhhh this looks fantastic. It reminds me of the outstanding Danish film Another Round, bouncing between hope & depression, with an authentic story about the trails & tribulations of life.
