Alliance Francaise Cine Club – L’aile Ou La Cuisse
L’AILE OU LA CUISSE
- Directed by Claude Zidi
Starring : Louis de Funès, Coluche, Julien Guiomar
France, 1976, 104 minutes, French with English sb
Charles Duchemin (Louis de Funès), a well-known gourmet and publisher of a famous restaurant guide, is waging a war against fast food entrepreneur Tricatel (Julien Guiomar) to save the French art of cooking. After having agreed to appear on a talk show to show his skills in naming food and wine by taste, he is confronted with two disasters: his son (Coluche) wants to become a clown rather than a restaurant tester and he, the famous Charles Duchemin, has lost his taste! This movie is an allegory of the antagonism between USA and French food cultures as they were seen by French people in the 70s, and might still be seen.
