Mostly Martha

I watched Mostly Martha earlier tonight. Lisette's Netflix queue has been quite interesting of late (Born into Brothels, City of God, Winged Migration), and this was no exception.

Mostly Martha is the story of Martha Klein, the top chef in Hamburg. Martha's entire existence revolves around food and its perfect preparation until she must care for her 8 year old niece Lina.

The story is cute, the food looks amazing and Sergio Castellitto turns in a spirited performance as Mario. Although it isn't the best movie ever it is certainly worth a rental. It is also the coolest thing I did today.
