The Taste of Things (French: La Passion de Dodin Bouffant, lit. 'The Passion of Dodin Bouffant'), previously titled The Pot-au-Feu, is a 2023 French historical romantic drama film written and directed by Trần Anh Hùng starring Juliette Binoche and Benoît Magimel.

Set in 1889, it depicts a romance between a cook and the gourmet she works for. The character of the gourmet is based on Dodin-Bouffant, created by Swiss author Marcel Rouff in his 1924 novel La Vie et la passion de Dodin-Bouffant, gourmet (The Passionate Epicure).


The film premiered on 24 May 2023 at the 76th Cannes Film Festival, and was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or in its main competition section, where Tran Anh Hung won the Best Director award. It was released in France on 8 November 2023. The film was chosen as the French entry for Best International Feature Film at the 96th Academy Awards.

The relationship between Eugenie, an esteemed cook, and Dodin, the gourmet she has been working for over the last 20 years. Growing fonder of one another, their bond turns into a romance and gives rise to delicious dishes that impress even the world's most illustrious chefs. When Dodin is faced with Eugenie's reluctance to commit to him, he decides to start cooking for her.


"Going to Mars" - May 15, 2023

May 15 - ''Going to Mars”  The Nikki Giovanni Project- Sundance Film Festival - Winner grand jury prize

Starting time: 7:00pm

Duration: 1 hours 42 minutes

Going to Mars: The Nikki Giovanni Project is a 2023 documentary film directed by Joe Brewster and Michèle Stephenson. It explores the life and career of American poet Nikki Giovanni.

It had its world premiere at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival on January 20, and was released in a limited release on November 3 by HBO Documentary Films prior to its broadcast on HBO on January 8, 2024.

The film covers American poet Nikki Giovanni's life and the historical periods she lived through from the civil rights movement and Black Arts Movement to Black Lives Matter. It was narrated by actress Taraji P. Henson.


I'm still thinking about Going to Mars: The Nikki Giovanni Project weeks after having seen it. The film itself is a poem about poetry, time, space and speaking truth. It effortlessly travels through different phases of Giovanni's life, creating a rich, full portrait that doesn't shy away from controversy.


I now get why Giovanni says black women are the ideal explorers to send to Mars, in a way that I didn't understand by reading her words. Keep a look out for this film, hopefully coming to a theater near you! The visuals, music and readings all transport you to Giovanni's world. It's an exhilarating place to be.

In this fight, he must also take on the country’s police and military, which are not afraid to use violence and torture in a vain attempt to intimidate and silence him and his supporters.

Follows Ugandan opposition leader, activist, and musical star Bobi Wine. He used his music to fight the regime led by Yoweri Museveni, the person who led the country for 35 years.
