Acclaimed filmmaker Frederick Wiseman (who turns 94 on January 1, 2024) explores the daily lives of the family running renowned French restaurant La Maison Troisgros—which has held three Michelin stars for the past five decades over four generations. The four-hour, mostly French-language film is set in central France and takes viewers through vegetable markets, cheese-making plants, and vineyards to behind the scenes in the kitchen with staff as they create, prepare, and present mouthwatering meals. The documentary is also a family portrait that focuses on third-generation chef Michel Troisgros as he passes the torch to his son.
