The follow-up to Louis-Julien Petit’s hit Invisibles (FFF 2019), The Kitchen Brigade explores the world of French gastronomy while also tackling issues of social justice and inclusion. Cathy (Audrey Lamy) is an inflexible 40-year-old sous-chef, finally fulfilling her lifelong dream of opening her own high-end restaurant. But things do not go to plan. Facing serious financial difficulties, she reluctantly accepts a job in the cafeteria of a shelter for young migrants. Though she hates the new job at first, Cathy’s remarkable skills and passion for cuisine start to change the young people’s lives. And it turns out they also have a lot to teach her.
"Gentle testament to the best of the human spirit and to the power of listening."
