A Taste of Hunger

Smagen af sult

Sweet. Sour. Salt. Fat. Heat.

Welcome to Malus, the bright new star in the culinary sky in Denmark. Here, the power couple Maggie (Katrine Greis-Rosenthal, A Fortunate Man) and Carsten (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Game of Thrones) rule on the Danish gourmet scene. Maggie is an anthropologist who has created the extraordinary setting of the restaurant, and Carsten is a renowned chef who works his magic in the kitchen.

They love each other, have two wonderful children, and own one of the most hyped restaurants in Copenhagen. They want it all and they have it all, except for the prestigious Michelin star they so desperately covet. In the relentless pursuit for perfection, the couple is willing to sacrifice everything to achieve their dream.

From their sweet first meeting they are eventually confronted by a sour betrayal resulting in a heated climax when all of the elements combine. 

A luscious and intense drama from director Christoffer Boe (The Purity of Vengeance, ScandiFF2019) and co-written by Tobias Lindholm (Another Round), A Taste of Hunger is a sumptuous feast for the senses.
