QUéBEC, Canada | 82 minutes | 1980

It all happens in one day. A group of men and women are at the bar where a wedding reception was due to take place. The former wait to be served by the latter, who’ve decided that as of now, they do only what they feel like doing. All of the film’s many women share the same desire to break free from the shackles that bind them. In its frontal attack on gender roles and male domination, La cuisine rouge marked a milestone in Quebec cinema. Can a dialogue between the sexes ever be possible?
