Pulsating with the energy and wit of Almodovar, director Nacho G. Velilla's debut is a pot of the best Spanish paella served piping hot and fresh. Javier Cámara (Talk to Her) stars as Chef Maxi, a culinary genius/drama queen with too much on his plate. As if keeping his chic restaurant in the black and wrangling with his wild staff aren't enough, add in a steamy romance with a closeted soccer superstar, sexual competition from gal pal Alex (Lola Dueñas, Volver) and a tense reunion with his estranged children. A box-office smash in Spain and a festival favorite around the globe, this saucy comedy serves up a bellyful of laughs.

In-House Review - Jul 15 2009
Peppered generously with sardonic humor, Chef's Special is a boon for fans of Spanish gay comedies such as Bear Cub and Boystown. Our titular chef, Maxi, has plenty on his plate. In addition to corralling the unpredictable staff at his high-end resta... Read More
