After Adam Jones’s (Bradley Cooper) devil chased him out of Paris, he have washed up in New Orleans and sentenced himself to a hard labor shucking oyster for a millionth times. After three years and finishes shucking his millionth oyster he returns to London with a plan to regain his former glory and go for his third Michelin star. After arriving in London, Adam begins to look up his old colleagues Tony (Daniel Brühl) who now manages his father’s hotel. Adam started working to get his third Michellin star by opening Langham restaurant and hired his previous colleagues: Michel (Omar Sy), David (Sam Keeley) and Max (Riccardo Scamarcio). Helene was a new addition in the group after getting fired at the Conti’s as Sous-chef. Trials and challenges await Adam and his team as they prepare and regain his glory in the kitchen industry.
Burnt, is another distinct movie created in 2015. The story is basically about the life and challenges the staffs in a restaurant kitchen are facing every day. Behind every restaurant’s calm dining room lays a frenzy kitchen run by adrenaline, passion and talent. I must say this is a masquerade revealed to the public! The main actor, Bradley Copper, did a justice in his character. He was indeed a versatile actor supported by other cast which made this movie more interesting to watch. His strong masculine physique matches his character of a successful person fell on a deep shit because of drugs. A very strong implied message that drugs can be fun but will slowly kills a person and one’s soul. Drug is like a hell disguised as heaven. The screenplay though not that detailed on Adam’s past shown that it will not only ruin one’s life but also the people surrounding you. This movie also taught us that behind every food we eat are a reflection of the one who created it. As what renowned chef, Ramsay Gordon, says “I don’t cook for the guide, I cook for customers!” signifying that every chef’s passion to their craft and significance of their customer are best way presented in their dishes! Hmmm, something to ponder when serving a dish to my husband… Hahahaha… One thing I also learned in this movie is how teamwork plays an important role in achieving one’s success. Master Chef’s ideas and creations will not succeed if his staffs are not cooperating well. Neither, his staff will not learn and flourish if they will not listen to their Master Chef. Just like in real life and popular motto, “One for all and all for one!” that’s how a team should and must always be.
