Somewhere in the midst of this gentle but powerful romance is the charismatic physician/poet Amadeu de Prado’s conviction that “no one should live in pain.” In the midst of a revolution, his conviction provides multiple conflicts around his dedication to destroy the autocratic rule of António de Oliveira Salazar. A beautifully crafted film, whose impact is lasting on its viewers.
A humorous, informative story about two great cooks. I have always loved Julia Child, but Meryl Streep and the direction give huge life to this very tall, very exciting woman. It also highlights the lifelong support of her husband, encourager and producer. On my all time top ten.
