Boiling Point

by Philip Barantini Feature Film Competition

Chef Andy is under stress: his luxury restaurant has just been stripped of two stars, all the tables are overbooked because of the holiday season, and his former mentor, a culinary icon, has shown up unannounced accompanied by a respected food critic. If that wasn’t enough, the mounting pressure is slowly but surely bringing the mood of his team members to the boil. How long will Andy manage to keep it all together? Director Philip Barantini takes us on a breathless journey through the fascinating hustle and bustle of a gourmet kitchen where different minds collide. Shot in one single impressive sequence that condenses an evening at the restaurant into 94 minutes, BOILING POINT casts its inevitable spell.
