Movie Info

In the Bolivian capital of La Paz, a city that sits 13,000 feet above sea level, an ambitious and unlikely culinary project has connected three people from vastly different backgrounds and is forever changing their lives. Kenzo, a hunter raised in the wild of the Bolivian Amazon, and Maria Claudia, a native of the Andean altiplano, are far from home. They have come to La Paz for Gustu, a groundbreaking fine-dining restaurant and cooking school for the country's underprivileged youth. Founded by acclaimed Danish restaurateur Claus Meyer, whose last project NOMA won "Best Restaurant in the World" a staggering four times; the hope is to guide these young Bolivians towards a better future as they attempt to establish their country as the world's next great culinary destination. As the film unfolds we explore their pasts and trace how their lives have led them to where they are today. We uncover what has driven this European chef to come to Latin America, and begin to see the parallels that tie their seemingly disparate backgrounds. Set against the backdrop of one of the world's most breathtakingly gorgeous countries, A Taste of Sky is a sensory experience that takes audiences on an epic journey across the rugged vistas of Bolivia, and is an exploration of family, mentorship, and legacy--all viewed through the powerful lens of food.

A Taste of Sky prefers to focus on the bigger picture, and while it is still an enjoyable film, one is left hungry for more.

Raises issues about family life, ambition, and women's opportunities while whetting the appetite with spectacular imagery - topographic as well as gastronomic.

April 29, 2019 | Full Review…

But the siren call of slow-motion close-ups and swelling string music prove too strong, and the brief glimmers of reality congeal into inspiration pablum.
