Le Chef

Directed by Daniel Cohen | Written by Daniel Cohen
Star chef Alexandre Lagarde (Jean Reno) is struggling to keep his multi-starred restaurant, Cargo Lagarde, afloat and is in serious conflict with its new CEO/owner Stanislas Matter (Julien Boisselier) who wants to replace him with a young trendy chef who specializes in the latest craze of molecular gastronomy.  Running out of ideas for his new menu Lagarde crosses paths with Jacky Bonnot (comedian and TV personality Michaël Youn, Around the World in 80 Days), an impassioned new chef with the right intentions who keeps getting fired from restaurants.  Working with the legendary Lagarde could be the one thing to turn Bonnot's life around but only if he can get Lagarde to shake his stubborn ways and embrace a new way of cooking.
With roles in over 80 films, beloved French actor Jean Reno has navigated both Hollywood blockbusters (The Da Vinci Code, Mission Impossible) as well as American indies such as Kenneth Lonergan's Margaret.  His long collaboration with director Luc Besson includes starring roles in The Professional, La Femme Nikita, and his Cesar-nominated performance in The Big Blue.
