This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!
Number of Times Seen – 1 (11 Oct 2020)
Brief Synopsis – After a global epidemic begins to make the population lose its senses of taste and smell, a chef and as scientist meet and fall in love.
Bottom Line – Pretty mediocre film that doesn’t work as well as one might hope. Being in the midst of a real pandemic doesn’t help make this film more enjoyable to watch because it doesn’t feel realistic enough. Ewan MacGregor and Eva Green are both great actors, yet they don’t manage to have enough chemistry together for us to really believe their relationship. The story unfolds in a pretty slow fashion with poor pacing because of the erratic nature of things.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In the scene where Ewan McGregor licks shaving cream off Eva Green in the bath, he’s actually licking up white chocolate. The bar of soap that he bites into is also white chocolate. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
