Kings of Pastry: Terrible Movies #66

OK, maybe terrible is a little excessive. When you only have the choice of good or bad, there isn't a lot of wiggle room.

I can tell that the filmmakers attempted to focus on the people and not the food. However, these incredibly talented culinary artists struggled to create masterpieces in sugar and flour, and lingering over the beautiful desserts for a few moments instead of a few cursory shots at the end of the film would have been nice. An episode of Food Network Challenge has the same "nerve-wracking suspense and drama" described above, and it's in Hi-Def. Overall, an average documentary, and in the world of the Meilleur Ouvrier de France, average just doesn't cut it. On Netflix Instant Streaming.
