Variety | 'Ants On A Shrimp' Review

Variety

“Have you got a mouthful?” The dish in question is deep-fried fish sperm, which Rene Redzepi — owner of one of the world’s top restaurants, Noma — is ordering his apprentices to taste. That’s about as sexy as the culinary documentary “Ants on a Shrimp” gets. Chronicling Redzepi’s project to create a 14-course menu in Japan, Dutch helmer Maurice Dekkers devotes most of his film to the celebrity chef’s extensive foraging, while his abstemious staff harps on about the onerous pursuit of perfection; one crucial missing ingredient, however, is the joy of eating or cooking. Although gourmands may complain about too much foreplay and not enough food porn, it’ll still be devoured by tube and on-demand platforms.

The story is too old to be commented.

Somehow, this is one of the single-most depressing images I've ever seen.
