Documentary
Documentary masters Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker scale the caloric heights in this entertaining “competition doc” about France’s quadrennial MOF contest (Meilleurs Ouvriers de France), the Mt. Everest for world-class Gallic pastry chefs. Cued to Django Reinhardt-style swing jazz, we follow a French immigrant chef from Chicago named Jacquy Pfeiffer as he and his fellow sugar artists create toweringly fanciful desserts in a three-day test, observed every step of the way by a platoon of judges. When one man’s delicate creation crumbles, everyone on screen breaks into tears. You might do the same. (87 min.)
