I Served the King of England

A Russian birdie with excellent culinary talents and a keen eye for good cinema, recently recommended the Czech film, "I Served the King of England," (bsluhoval jsem anglického krále,) by former Czech New Wave director, Jirí Menzel. Commenting on the beautiful, sweeping dining scenes and lush representations of food, her descriptions of this film have made me put this next on my list of must see movies. I've noticed that Czech artists have a unique, wonderful way of capturing food. If you aren't familiar, also take a look at the work of Jan Švankmajer and Jiří Barta.
