    Review: French Cooking Comedy 'Haute Cuisine' An Unmemorable Meal

    Loosely based on the life of French president François Mitterrand’s personal chef, “Haute Cuisine” is a cream puff of a film. It’s sweet and airy without much nutritional value.

    Summertime. Kids. Dead Body. The hood. This sounds familiar, but this tale is unlike what you’ve seen. The Magic City is a gritty, poignant but still hopeful coming-of-age tale in Miami’s Liberty City where girls take center stage.
