Fifth about The Seventh

Chef (2014)

Chef: while the main storyline is cute (and simple) enough, it is the sweet father-son relationship that is told in parallel that raises this film above the usual for this genre. The nice cast cruises along, without much to do, but Jon Favreau is a nice presence and Robert Downey Jr. almost steals the movie in his scene. Visually, it’s crisp and clean; the highlights are the cooking scenes, which are attractive and hunger-inducing, but almost excessive. Also deserving some mention is the song selection.
