Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is one of my favorite actors, and as always he has an excellent performance in this film. A Taste of Hunger was sold as Nikolai being the main actor, however the big star of this film is not him, but Katrine Greis-Rosenthal (Maggie). The plot developed throughout the film was completely wrapped around her character, leaving Carsten, Nikolai's character, in the background. There was no reason to create so much marketing over Nikolai's name and so little on Katrine, this is something that bothered me a lot, even though Nikolai is my favorite actor.
The story is interesting, with a justifiable personal desire of the character. The photography is wonderful, capturing beautiful elements and scenery from Denmark. I noticed some camera and continuation errors, but they are passable.
The plot developed throughout the film is quite warm until the middle, focusing exclusively on the desires, hopes and characteristics of the characters. And after all that, there's an interesting plot twist at the end of the movie, something that is, frankly, unimaginable.
Overall, A Taste of Hunger is a good movie to watch in the afternoon. It's not a film with an excellent plot, but it is... charismatic. The performances are excellent, soundtrack PERFECT, photography great, and a warm story.
A couple who sacrifice everything to achieve the highest possible accolade in the culinary world - a Michelin star.
