[Movie] When chef got 'Burnt'
The movie, as portrayed in the trailer, was about chefs and fine dining experiences. Fun trivia, its was said that the movie inspired by Marco Pierre White, Clare Smyth, Marcus Wareing, and Gordon Ramsay. All world renowned chef.
In this movie, the star was Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper). He had a bump in his life. Just like everyone else. He used to work in a fancy restaurant, got to the peak of his career and life, and it all went bust because he got started to do drugs. Well, who saw that one coming? Haha
|As fucked as that time when I was on crack.|
After he's done shucking one million oysters, of course. His first order of business, was to look for his best friend in the world, Tony Balerdi (Daniel Bruhl), a former maitre d'hotel from where Adam used to work. Ok, maybe they are not the best of friends. But they're close, close enough to know each other's strength and weaknesses.
Adam wanted to take over Tony's restaurant. He proved himself to Tony that he can still cook. But Tony already knew that. What he really concerns about was that whether Adam still on crack. So in exchange of giving Adam control over the restaurant, the Balerdi family requires him to do weekly drug test. Yes, the Balerdi family owns both the hotel and restaurant, and as much as they valued highly trained professionals, hooked on crack kinda devalued that.
|Are you on crack, David?? Huh??!!|
Probably because Conti expected Adam to kick the bucket sooner or later due to crack overdose, so he might as well let Adam trained his chef while not dying over crack. Yet. So, Adam got Helene (Sienna Miller) from Conti's, Max (Riccardo Scamarcio) from prison, David (Sam Keely) from roadside food shop, and Michel (Omar Sy) from the past.
Adam got a little bit of history with Michel. Ok, maybe not a little bit. Adam screwed Michel's new restaurant back in Paris. But Michel told Adam that is all behind him, because he knew Adam was unstable due to crack usage. So, now he's willing to help Adam to get back on his feet. Hurmm nothing suspicious there.
|And NO, I'm not on crack right now!|
His drug dealer. They caught the news that he's in London working in a new restaurant, well, its all fun and games but ultimately it have a price. Those cracks have price. And the drug dealer intend to collect.
So all of these twist and turns, all because Adam wanted to get his third Michelin star. Oh yeah, I didn't mentioned that? This whole movie is about Adam trying to get a Michelin star. Its kinda a big thing, I guess, in culinary world. As big as a gold medal in Olympic, probably.
Michel gonna ruin Adam's chance, because of what he did back in Paris to Michel's restaurant. Hahaha. The cycle of hate never gonna end, isn't? Not until all of us got burnt to cinders..
