All chefs dream of the distinction of receiving the coveted Michelin star, but who decides this peculiar rating and what are the criteria for obtaining one? This beautifully filmed documentary takes us into some of the most stunning restaurants serving the most exquisite cuisines. Director Rasmus Dinesen serves up an in-depth and honest look into the world of Michelin chefs and explores the significance and flaws of the Michelin Guide, founded over 115 years ago as a road guide for travel enthusiasts to find the best dining and lodging. It is now the barometer for the most passionate of the culinary craft. Michelin Stars illuminates the motivation, elation, and agony of those who spend their lives searching, evolving, and replicating their emotions on a plate to maintain their stars and their devotees. —Various sources
