The film tells the story of Pascal Ichak, a French opera singer and chef living in Georgia, who opens a restaurant.

Le film raconte l'histoire de Pascal Ichak, cuisinier et voyageur, est cuisinier et ami personnel du Président de la république géorgienne. Lorsque les forces soviétiques de Lénine envahirent la Géorgie, renversent le pouvoir et instaurent la terreur militaire, il refuse catégoriquement de quitter le pays. De grand cuisinier réputé et adulé par les princes et les notables de l'ancien régime, il fait alors face à la déchéance et à l’Armée Rouge.




The theater doors open 25 minutes before the movie starts. You are welcome to wait in the library if you arrive before then.

The movie is free but we appreciate a donation of $5 for which we will thank you with a glass of French wine before the movie starts.

See you there!
