Le Bec-Fin is closing its doors. After 33 years, the crown jewel of the Philadelphia restaurant scene, known for its stellar French cuisine, opulent style, and impeccable service, no longer seems in step with current tastes. This film follows fiery owner and head chef Georges Perrier over the last four years of life at the restaurant, granting us ample access inside the belly of the beast. In stark contrast to the orchestrated perfection of its dining room, Le Bec-Fin’s kitchen is a constant circus of sweaty chaos and emotions, with Perrier as ringleader. He screams, he swears, he hovers obsessively over his sauces, tossing in dollops of heavy cream and large nobs of butter whenever backs are turned. But even as the intensity of the job, and its 21-hour workdays, takes its toll, Perrier struggles with his decision to relinquish control. More than just a vivid character study of a dedicated and passionate perfectionist, King Georges is a touching tribute to this master chef who realizes it is time to pass the torch on to the next generation whom he’s mentored so well.
