Tribune News Service (TNS)

A delectable historical drama tops the DVD releases for the week of May 7.

“The Taste of Things”: A gourmand (Benoît Magimel) and his cook (Juliette Binoche) find a fascinating partnership in late-19th century France.

“The film is a celebration of food, the kind that achieves a balance between simplicity and decadence,” writes Tribune News Service critic Katie Walsh in her review. “But food is just a vessel for the love story in ‘The Taste of Things,’ one we don’t see often enough, of a sweet, egalitarian love, built on respect and companionship, savored sweetly in the autumn of life.”
