    Pons has aimed for a performance-driven drama whose virtues are of the small-scale, low-key variety, with the director working within narrow dramatic limits as always but here doing so brilliantly.
  2. An elegant work, Food of Love is as consistently engaging as it is revealing.

    A reserved coming-of-age story that overcomes flat acting and one-dimensional scene-building thanks to its lively plot.
  4. To say the least, the chemistry is lacking; equally unconvincing is the all-British cast’s attempts at American accents.

    Tossed by successive waves of floridity and biliousness, Food of Love finally washes up on the shores of camp.
  6. 30
    Crushingly airless film -- Food chokes on its own depiction of upper-crust decorum.

    "Food of Love" is a dramatic film about the difficult love between people of different ages. A beautiful love story interrupted by actually. Perhaps filme I like less is that it was shot in Barcelona and not in Rome as in the original novel, "The Page Turner" by David Leavitt. A good way to meet Kevin Bishop. Expand
