THREE STARS (Drei Sterne)
U.S Theatrical Premiere
Recommended! -NewCity Chicago
Focusing on nine Michelin starred chefs from three continents, Three Stars depicts the everyday drama of life in gourmet restaurants and includes exclusive interviews as well as behind-the-scenes access to some of the world's most talented chefs as they work in their gastronomic laboratories, hunt for exquisite ingredients in local markets, and gather rare edible plants along rough coastlines. Far from the common and superficial TV portrayals, it reveals the real business of cooking on the highest level, by cross cutting between the various kitchen routines, tastes and culinary philosophies.
Award-winning filmmaker Lutz Hachmeister was privileged to observe the work of the following celebrity chefs: Yannick Alléno (Paris), Olivier Roellinger (Cancale, France), Sergio Herman (Sluis, the Netherlands), Jean-Georges Vongerichten (New York), Sven Elverfeld (Wolfsburg, Germany), Juan Mari and Elena Arzak (San Sebastian, Spain), Nadia Santini (Runate, Italy), Hideki Ishikawa (Tokyo) as well as René Redzepi (Copenhagen, Denmark).
Directed by Lutz Hachmeister, Germany, 2011, 94 mins.
