THE QUEST OF ALAIN DUCASSE / LA QUÊTE D’ALAIN DUCASSE 
(N/C 12+)

With 18 Michelin stars, Alain Ducasse creates restaurants for our times, builds schools and pushes the boundaries of his profession. This public, yet secretive man agreed to be followed for two years by film-maker Gilles de Maistre, thereby revealing his evolving universe. His quest is to open the perfect gastronomic restaurant in a renovated wing of the Palace of Versailles, creating a modern vision of what the kings would have devised three centuries ago. When asked about the ambition of being the “King of Gastronomy” he replies that all he wants is to satisfy and leave memories of a good meal. An eye-opening and memorable documentary.
