Three Stars movie scene

Find out what's cooking in Three Stars.

The 2010 documentary film Three Stars examines the drama of day-to-day life in and around a gourmet restaurant.

Written and directed by Lutz Hachmeister, this German production focuses on ten world-class chefs—Jean-Georges Vongerichten, René Redzepi, Yannick Alléno, Nadia Santini, Olivier Roellinger, Sergio Herman, Sven Elverfeld, Hideki Ishikawa, Juan Mari & Elena Arzak—and includes exclusive interviews and looks at them as they explore new creations in their gastronomic laboratories, hunt for ingredients in local markets, and gather rare edible plants along rough coastlines.

By highlighting not only the culinary philosophies but also the daily kitchen routines of the chefs, Three Stars also succeeds at revealing the business of cooking. Additionally, the film opens a window into what goes into the world’s most important restaurant review book – the iconic red Michelin Guide, a three-star rating in which is what every restaurant strives for.

Presented with English subtitles, the DVD of the movie has no bonus features.
