The film views the love of food and romance as all one singular desire for everything beautiful and fleeting in life.

The Taste of Things is, in basic terms, a very nice and sweet movie, although Dodin’s grief as the paramours suffer tragedy in their autumn years is emotionally punishing. But there’s not necessarily anything wrong with a movie being “very nice and sweet,” especially one as lovingly crafted as this.

Food is a gift of love here – and romance courses through this delightful film.
