Entre les Bras

In 2009, world-renowned French chef Michel Bras, the owner of a three Michelin-star restaurant in France's Aubrac region, decided to hand over the business to his son Sébastien. Having built up the family name over the course of decades, Bras now enters uncertain territory as he negotiates this difficult generational transition. Is it possible to pass on one's life's work? Is it possible for a son to emerge from the shadow of his feted father? Giving insight into the life and art of one of the world's greatest chefs, Entre les bras is an absorbing documentary about work ethics, family ties, and impeccable cuisine.
