Le Goût des Autres (2000)

A business man, an actress, a body guard, a waitress, a chauffeur, an artist, and a home decorator give us a sense of the uniqueness of man and womankind. How The Taste of Others causes us to question our own.

Though nothing earth shattering may happen in this film, we are drawn into the lives of several people who are connected in some way to prickly entrepreneur Jean-Jacques. Jean-Jacques' passion is awakened when he attends a play. He begins to realize that he has more depth than he previously assumed. The people around him try to help him understand what he should be interested in, but he struggles to define his own identity.

The film is French and so food, the arts and sex must be explored - though tastefully, and with great humour and pathos.
